NEGATIVE ENTROPY (DIGITAL OCEAN 4U NAS UNIT PINK YELLOW, SINGLE)
cotton, wood, acoustic baffling felt
39 x 27 inches
The paintings, sculptures, video, and performances by Mika Tajima record society’s changing modes of production, consumption, and lived experience. For the Negative Entropy series, audio recordings were made at Jacquard loom factories and computer data centers. The sound waves were transmuted into digital spectrogram images, and each wave form was assigned a color. The high-end factories then weave the spectrogram images into Jacquard fabric that Tajima mounts on acoustic felt panels. Each work in the series becomes a self-portrait of its location – the industrial looms weaving sounds they generate with their production. Tajima’s work has been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the South London Gallery; and was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
