Ends in 34 days
Yuka Numata’s “Sampling Theorem” is the third exhibition of young artists presented by Montblanc and The Chain Museum. Numata creates installations and paintings of digitally manipulated images. Iron beads are an element of Numata’s installations, which combine analog elements with digital images that have been visually distorted, as if due to a computer glitch. These works with motifs including people, food, street scenes, and computer graphics experiment with the viewer’s senses of intimacy and deja vu. Her works on display and for sale here can be found in the show window and in the store.
The title Sampling Theorem refers to qualitative theorizing that takes place when an analogue signal is converted to a digital signal. The sampled data is called a pixel, the smallest unit of a digital image. Numata interprets the final unit as a fundamental element of the image, adding physical presence. The work blurs the lines between the digital and the real and the two and three dimensional.
