Though he can make diamonds, turn love into money and make music with shooter games, he is not a magician. Instead, Shane Mecklenburger, an assistant professor of art and technology at Ohio State University, is an intermedia artist investigating American culture through media art and performance. Not completely sure what that is (or how he does that)? Head out to The Reading Room, 3715 Parry Ave., Saturday and Sunday. Mecklenburger will lead a reading based on the 1983 script of Superman III. He will also display a diamond made from 32 pages of the script. After seeing that, your eyes will be asking for more. Your peepers are in luck as TRR is featuring some of Mecklenburger’s new works in Tendered Currency. This exhibition, which showcases videos, prints and sculptures, will continue through May 12. The opening reception and reading will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday and again at 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information, contact Karen Weiner at 214-952-4109 or visit thereadingroom-dallas.blogspot.com.
