First monograph on the American media artist’s innovative techniques

Jim Campbell (*1956 in Chicago) is universally acknowledged as a masterful new media artist, adept at manipulating the base materials of electronics and computers into visual haiku of the information age. What this volume reveals, comprehensively spanning twenty years of his career, is that the real guts of his art is not in soldered connections but in a sublime reduction of vision into rhythm. What is barely deciphered by the eyes is strangely comprehensible to the mind, as if reconstructing familiar memories from the future. Campbell is one of the pioneering artists of the twenty-first century. His innovative techniques transform the pervasive mediaverse surrounding us—and our relation to it.

Exhibition schedule: Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, New York , April 15–May 29, 2010
