Using LED technology and custom electronics, Jim Campbell explores the connections of light, space and time.
The ICA has organized an exhibition of new work by internationally recognized Bay Area media artist Jim Campbell. Using LED technology and custom electronics, Campbell explores the connections of light, space and time. His work tests our ability to perceive images by reducing the resolution and clarity dramatically. In a world that is primarily defined by crystal-clear resolution, Campbell uses cutting-edge technology to produce images that are at once recognizable and indistinguishable, providing a challenging counterpoint to the current pursuit of higher and higher definition. In his most recent work, Campbell has begun to “pull apart” his flat grids of evenly spaced LEDs to create a three-dimensional format. Building on this more sculptural approach, Campbell has created a site-specific installation for the ICA exhibition. Presented in the Focus Gallery, this new work will provide an immersive, 360-degree experience for our visitors, placing them in the middle of the moving imagery. In a unique collaboration with sculptor Jane Rosen, Campbell will further explore the three-dimensionality of his work by combining his light installations with her glass sculptures.
Major support for JIM CAMPBELL: New Work and Collaborations with Jane Rosen is provided by a grant from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Additional funding is provided by Pamela and David Hornik and The Lipman Family Foundation.
