Charles Atlas

by Elisabeth Kley

The crowds that flocked to Bushwick for the opening of Luhring Augustine’s much-awaited new space on Feb. 17, 2012, were rewarded with “The Illusion of Democracy,” a spectacular display of video projections by the Charles Atlas (b. 1958), the media artist long known for his collaborations with the late Merce Cunningham. In several high-ceilinged galleries, Atlas has devised a computer-generated universe of illuminated numbers that seems to materialize on the walls out of the darkness, setting up a dialogue between order and chaos.
