508 and 510 W. 25th St.

Spectacle is alive and well and garnering new fans in the digital age. That's the clear message of this show of multi-screen videos by Japan's teamLab, founded in 2001 by artist/designer Toshiyuki Inoko. The group, which is both large (with up to 300 come-and-go contributors) and diverse (attracting artists, mathematicians, engineers, programmers, etc.), focuses in this exhibition, titled "Ultra Subjective Space," on the Eastern method of non-perspectival composition. Visual references—some explicit, some generalized—range from 17th-century Japanese art to the deep sea to the cosmos. Everything is colorful and everything is in motion, suggesting a world of pure perceptual vitality. Viewers who can't get enough can look forward to another major installation this fall at New York's Japan Society.
