CUSTOM PRINTING: TATSUO MIYAJIMA AT THE MCA

We recently worked with Sydney's Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) on a custom scarf design to accompany their major Summer exhibition, Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything.

Tatsuo Miyajima (born 1957, Ibaraki) is one of Japan’s most renowned contemporary artists, known for his sculptures and room-scale installations incorporating light and numbers. Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything is Miyajima’s first exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere. It encompasses his sculptural works, rooms and environments, and performance videos.

Time and its passage are explored through the works and represented visually by multiple, small digital counting devices. Miyajima developed his first customised digital counters in the late 1980s, using light emitting diodes or LEDs. These ‘counter gadgets’ remain central to his art today, their red and green palette expanding in the mid-1990s to include blue, then white, as LED technology developed in and beyond Japan.

The scarf features a detail of Warp Time with Warp Self (2010), a work which bathes viewers in immersive coloured light and mirrored finishes. The scarf is printed to 100% silk chiffon, with hand-rolled hems and is available exclusively from the Museum of Contemporary Art gift store for the duration of the exhibition (03 November 16 - 5 March 2017).
