Piken’s work has the quality of alchemy, forcing media and composition to reveal properties. It is strange to see a nautical image emerge from his shoebox studio in Bedford Stuyvesant, as it seems to lock into the bedrock beneath his apartment to tell its stories. He has installation work that discovers the spiritual from a spent laptop — it is a used laptop that is put into a model of a Japanese torii shrine. His mind is preoccupied with many things, from Japan, to creating music, to pushing composition to bold edges within a tight space of consideration. – tenten2012
