New World Order is a series of five exhibitions held in the Loft Gallery. In each presentation, the artists explore the rapidly changing world through artworks with social, political, and ecological contexts.

In this segment, two artists look at technology using their distinct media. For Kirk Crippens, the ever-present computer screen is revealed by his camera to be a generator of formal compositions in glowing color. For Max Lawrence, technology is the medium.  His complex and visually stunning art installations live and almost breathe as they respond to the viewer's response to the art piece. The result is a dynamic, multisensory experience created by artist and viewer.
