My original overview of the art exhibited at the Armory Show was just a speck of this giant show. Here are some additional artworks and yet still, it is just a small sampling. 

Michael Joaquin Grey digitally transforms Botticelli into Michael Grey and back again, with his computer program, which moves so slowly you cannot see the transformation happening. It is fascinating to watch. "Between Simoneetta" at Galeria SENDA, Barcelona

Above: Norwegian artist, Børre Sæthre manufactures his work "Ghost Arcade" out of melamine panels to the exact specifications of old arcade games. With his form of existential modernism, he sets the stage for a future of loneliness - which we have been heading toward ever since that "one giant leap for mankind." Shown at Loevenbruck, Paris.

Carsten Höller, "CANARIES" series at Carolina Nitsch Gallery. The sepia toned prints are so subtle, they seem to reinvent monochromatic photography.

Carsten Nicolai inserts loops of metal strips into clear acrylic boxes and lets the shapes self organize in a random fashion. The shapes never change, due to the equilibrium of forces, formed inside the box. At Galerie EIGEN+ART, Berlin
