Mika Tajima

Mika’s series Negative Entropy are abstract Jacquard woven portraits of industrial and information production. The subject of these portraits are factories that employ industrial textile Jacquard looms (a precursor to digital technology) and computer data center sites that comprise the new economy infrastructure. These works are simultaneously images and material records of their own making. Field recordings of production sounds were made at each site, then transmuted into digital spectrogram images using a linguistic audio software. Color was assigned to the wave forms, then translated into a pattern by a weaving technician to create a Jacquard fabric.
