Want to step inside a giant projection of binary code and pulsating digital soundscape? This Friday, Japan’s pride, joy, electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda brings the transfinite into the 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall of the Park Avenue Armory, transforming it into an audio-visual environment that will transfix your physical senses.
The exhibition is a “Dynamic Meditation on the Concept of Infinity” with two large-scale works of orchestrated data visualization. Shifting binary code “composed of the invisible streams of data that permeate our world,” thumping black and white strips and a multi-layered soundtrack makes up Ikeda’s most ambitious project to date.
