R. Luke DuBois’ new media exhibition “Now” at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art is a powerful introduction to the digital sublime.
“Now” features about 20 sets of slickly presented conceptual works based on data-mining. Some are based on simple, accessible gestures, such as “Billboard” (2005), in which each of the top songs on the Billboard Hot 100 list from 1958 to 2000 is played for one second for each week it topped the charts.
