CHiKA is a Japanese born, New York based artist.
Her experience in real time video performance for a decade has influenced her artistic practice, shifting it from a one-way communication channel with the audience into an inclusive experience that uses technology to establish a moment of co-creation with the public.
Her work creates what she describes as the symphony of light: minimalist geometric shapes and visuals that explore and invite people to reinvent themselves through the relationship between images. Light and sound are the main elements she uses in her installations, which are ultimately a visual performance that explore improvisational communication and interaction with audience in real time.
Her work has been shown in numerous international venues and festivals, including the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Art and Design, NY Hall of Science, Eyebeam, Harvestworks, the Hammer Museum, San Francisco Art Institute, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Museo Regional de Guadalajara, Matadero Madrid, and International Biennial Contemporary Art ULA-2010, Mapping Festival, Mutek, Dumbo Art Festival and among others.
