About the Work
Green Echo is a print edition based on the artist's ongoing Dream Machine project, consisting of hundreds of computer-generated drawings created in homage to the exchange between artist and poet Brion Gysin (1916 - 1986) and writer William S. Burroughs (1914 - 1997). The dream machine was a device created for Gysin and Burroughs by Ian Somerville in the late 1950s, using stroboscopic technology and oscillating light to stimulate the optical nerves while the viewer's eyes are closed. Evoking the hallucinatory effects intended by Gysin's machine, Elrod processes his original piece into blurred visual fields that resist coherence.
Jeff Elrod (b. 1966, Dallas, TX) has exhibited at numerous important institutions in the United States including MoMA PS1 (New York), Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield, CT), Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art, and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art (Kansas City) as well as solo exhibitions at Luhring Augustine (New York), Galerie Max Hetzler (Paris), Simon Lee Gallery (London), Vito Schnabel Gallery (St. Moritz) and Casamadre Arte Contemporanea (Naples).

Elrod is the recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award (1998), and the Claire Hart De Goyer Award bestowed by the Dallas Museum of Art (1992).
