Contemporary Art: Transmuted Images @ 11R Gallery, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Do you like elegant & elaboratingly constructed abstracts? Then you might enjoy a show @ 11R Gallery on New York`s Lower East Side (195 Chrystie Street 11rgallery). They display works by Mika Tajiama. The exhibition is called "Embody" (through March 13, 2016).

The press release explains that "each work is made from field recordings that are digitally transmuted into images and physically interpreted by a weaving designer to produce a Jacquard fabric.  Passing through different processes and hands, these textiles are woven on an industrial Jacquard loom, considered a predecessor to mass automated technology and a prototype for computers" (press-release).
