Takeshi Murata's TV-Sampled Glitch Masterpieces On Display At MAD
Above: Our profile on Takeshi Murata.
We’re quite familiar with Takeshi Murata‘s affinity for distorting and manipulating video into beautiful, chaotic clusters of color and glitchy geometry. His latest exhibition, Immortality at Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in New York, gathers a poignant sampling of Murata’s work, featuring pieces that span several years.
Pulling footage from old game shows like The Price Is Right, sitcoms like Three’s Company, and films like First Blood, Murata applies his techniques, deteriorating the footage to “highlight the decay of media narratives,” as MAD puts it on their site.
Below, see stills from some of the footage on the chopping block for Immortality.
