Shortwave Crackle Booster (2014)

Ryota Matsumoto's drawings develop and demonstrate the hybrid/multi-layered process where varying scale, juxtaposition of different forms, intertwined textures/tones are applied to reinvent and question the spatial conditions of architectural drawings. His work explore a hybrid drawing technique combining both traditional media (ink, acrylic, and graphite) and digital media (algorithmic processing, scripting and image compositing with custom software ) .

Full Description

The title 'Shortwave Crackle' and work, itself are inspired by my first impression of listening to the recording archive of messages from Numbers Station...strings of numbers, phonetic letters and sometimes amplitude modulated tones are transmitted by government agencies to communicate with their deployed agents in foreign countries. There is the wonderful collection of these recordings called the Conet Project.
