Mika Tajima - Negative Entropy (2012)

Negative Entropy is a series of abstract woven portraits. These works are simultaneously images and material records of their own production. The subjects are aging factories using industrial textile Jacquard looms (a precursor to digital technology) and server colocation centers that comprise today’s cloud computing infrastructure.

Tajima recorded production sounds at several locations in manufacturing areas of Pennsylvania, once a booming industrial region, which included a few remaining textile-related factories in the area as well as a data center network in Philadelphia.

The recordings were then transmuted into digital image files, and then physically translated by a weaving designer into a Jacquard fabric.

The final woven textiles were stretched over custom acoustic panels to function as sound deadening tiles, the same type used in recording studios to isolate sounds made by individual performers.

The looms inscribe their own death, producing a mute visualization of vacant factories and the ascendant industry of immaterial abstractions.”

We framed these as well!
