Test Pattern - Ryoji Ikeda
Ikeda’s work translates the digital data that surrounds us in everyday life into flickering barcodes. On the artist’s 100-meter-long projection, the visitor is at the same time viewer and part of the image.
A fascinating and troubling poet of the digital age, Ikeda’s profound investigations in sound, time and space have their basis in mathematical methods which result in works of spare, sublime, if occasionally ear-splitting beauty. Spanning the microscopic to the infinite, his performances, installations and artworks variously produce sine waves, sound pulses, pixels of light and numerical data - sometimes in extraordinary combinations.

"In fact, they were manifesting themselves at that very moment. They were emerging from the light, from transparency: they were opaque, definitely opaque, but because of the whiteness of the cement dust, they were hard to distinguish from the light."
