Description

Takeshi Murata (born 1975) first became known as an early innovator of "datamoshing," a form of "glitch art" that requires compressing two videos together until their respective pixels merge into one mashed-up picture. Since then, inspired by Giorgio de Chirico and traditional 17th-century Dutch and Flemish painting, Murata's work has ventured into the realm of hyper-realism in a series of uncanny prints and videos that explore our inner and exterior lives via everything from B-grade horror film imagery to relics of a 1980s childhood. Part monograph and part artist's book, Takeshi Murata includes an essay by New Museum curator Lauren Cornell, an interview with the artist conducted by Alex Gartenfeld, Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, and an essay by Dan Nadel.
