The next time you’re in the Bowery, find respite from the heat and duck into Bitforms‘ summer show. Representing work of six different artists, the pieces’ glass and gloss put them in dialogue with one another—the changing hues of the LED board on the far wall and the opposite illuminated animation are caught in reflection throughout the room and echoed in a color-shifting Klein bottle (for the uninitiated: a closed surface with a single side). From works evoking early Windows graphics to the contemporary surveillance state, the show has a decided focus on the experiential side of our relationship to technology and should not be missed.
