SRL was conceived and founded by Mark Pauline in 1978 as an organization of
creative technicians dedicated to redirecting the techniques, tools, and tenets
of industry, science, and the military away from their typical manifestations
in practicality, product, or warfare. In recognition of the remarkable vision

will mark a quarter century of performances.  Included in the gallery will be
machines, documentary videos, and large-scale images.  SRL engages new
