CHiKA is a Japanese-born, New York-based New Media Artist. Creating minimalist geometric
shapes and visuals that explore in dark space and inviting people to reinvent themselves through
the relationship between objects and images.
Like an Ocean gyre, a vortex of artifacts of a consumption based contemporary society become
ensnarled with driftwood, dead coral, and seaweed creating a grotesques amalgamation of disparate
materials which remarkably can still harbor life.
I am interested in our bodies, their weight, the actual corporeal feeling of them, our denial of
them, hybridity, sexuality. I am interested in religious and ceremonial aesthetics and symbolism-
how we as humans make sense of ourselves.
For this series of ink drawing on Yupo paper, I have developed an abstract
visual language of forms and marks that references the virtual world including our relationship
with the internet, interconnectedness and social media.
Collages made by hand and digitally, representing my navigation of both dreamscapes and
day to day waking life, thematically inclined toward investigations of physical vs robotic,
technology and spirituality.
The explores the collusion between nature and science.
Based on nature's sculptured forms Campbell induces new
definitions through fragmented objects, bending forms, concepts
and connotations of the everyday natural systems.
