Recognition comes in a flash and disappears, like an image that hangs in the air and then vanishes. At Artechouse, Refik Anadol pays homage to the power of the human mind, and also, hauntingly, the power of machines. With a dataset of over 300 million images of New York architecture, Anadol uses “the most advanced art platform in the world” to project them across a space for seconds at a time. The 150 megapixels offer a dazzling take on art, architecture, and perception. —E.C.
