FUZZY LOGIC, 2008

MoMA PS1 Contemporary Art Center, NY. Solo Exhibition

Prema Murthy’s installation Fuzzy Logic combines digital technology with a handicraft aesthetic to explore the possibilities of placing lines in space. Black yarn knotted at intervals delineates a multi-faceted crystalline structure that is accompanied by black and white digital drawings depicting similar angular forms. All of the drawings contain a fragment of a larger network of lines that could continue ad infinitum. Although seemingly inflected by the artist’s hand, the drawings are produced with the aid of several software programs. With references ranging from the infinite space of undiscovered galaxies to the unplumbed depths of the psychic landscape, her installation probes some of the myriad possibilities presented by the merging of technology and tradition. - Eugene Tsai, Head curator
