The Glitch Wave

First shown November 6, 2016 at the New York City Internet Yami-Ichi at the Knockdown Center in Queens.

Informed by Hokusai’s original woodblock prints and Softbank’s modern interpretation as emoji for Unicode 6.0, this work honors the iconic rogue wave’s perennial ability to send a message.

2016 archival inkjet print with hand varnish; in an edition of 8, numbered in pencil and stamped verso, 9 x 36 inches; ships unframed, rolled in a 3-inch cardboard tube.
