Jim Campbell: Color by Number
San Francisco-based, MIT-educated Jim Campbell is known for his “conceptually rigorous, poetically inventive and technically masterful” work where digital information and video imagery are the media. In this exhibition of new pieces exploring themes of memory and association, Campbell, for the first time, utilizes color. The pixel, representing the digitization of imagery, is the key to the exhibition. Individually and collectively pixels serve both to reveal and conceal information, as the viewer is forced to rely upon their memory to interpret the work.
