Art In America

teamLab

at Pace,
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.
