ARENA 1 Gallery is pleased to present Punc h Card II\, a group exhibition with works by six artists who m erge technology and traditional textiles to create their own unique “digita l stitch”. Collectively\, the works in this exhibition suggest the loom as a precursor for contemporary digital practices.

\n

Included are the te am Andy Diaz and Laurel Roth\, and Nina Katchadourian\ , Victor De La Rosa\, Devorah Sperber and Stephanie Syjuco .

\n

Whether weaving digitally\, pixel by pixel (Andy Diaz Hope an d Laurel Roth)\, using computer graphics and hand looming on jacquard power looms (Vic De La Rosa)\, or directly on commercially produced photographs (Nina Katchadourian)\, or melding digitally printed patterns and outsourced fabrication with traditional 19th Century fabrication (Stephanie Syjuco)\, or inverting and deconstructing art historical or pop culture iconography and recomposing the image with individual spools of thread (Devorah Sperber )\, these artists are purposefully exploring the possibilities between hand and machine in the digital age.

Punch Card II< /i> is a second iteration of an exhibition initially organized by and exhibited at Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco at the end of 201 2.
