Takeshi Murata’s videos are seething masses of data distortion and fractured figuration. Humans, monkeys, and monsters slog through and come apart in a beautiful complex pattern of disrupted video. By hacking the way a computer reads a DVD, Takeshi is able to painstakingly create frame by frame an image of both painterly abstraction and technological fragmentation. He has recently exhibited at Barbara Gladstone, Ratio 3, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and The Hirschorn Museum in DC.
