Ryoji Ikeda +/- [the infinite between 0 and 1]

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for Ryoji Ikeda +/- [the infinite between 0 and 1]

This event has ended.

Ryoji Ikeda is one of the Japan's foremost electronic musicians and a world renowned composer and artist. His highly refined works and performances confront tirelessly the boundaries between technology and human perception, spanning not only the field of music, but also architecture, video and dance.

The world experienced through human perception is understood as a combination of "data" made up of components like sine waves and pixels. By recombining these elements in new configurations, a completely different experience of the world can be created. Ikeda's films, videos and sound works delineate this mass of invisible data by tackling the relationships that exist between sound and light.

This solo exhibition focuses on a large scale yet meticulously composed video installation, and features works that attempt to explore new realms of human perception.

This fine art of zeros and ones
By Jeff Michael Hammond
Special to The Japan Times

Hasegawa says Ikeda's art "doesn't have any particular symbolic meaning; it is nonsignifying. He just wants to create a kind of matrix, or give the idea of the universe and infinity, for the visitor to simply enjoy. You can read whatever you like into the work ... "

Ryoji Ikeda’s ‘+/- [the infinite between 0 and 1]’:
An Interpretation
by Max Hodges

...Review and description of Ikeda’s work tends to stop short of interpretation. Indeed, with regard to the meaning of Ikeda’s work, curator Hasegawa’s says that Ikeda’s art, “doesn’t have any particular symbolic meaning; it is nonsignifying. He just wants to create a kind of matrix, or give the idea of the universe and infinity, for the visitor to simply enjoy. You can read whatever you like into the work.”

But while Hasegawa seems to believe the exhibition amounts to little more than audiovisual eye-candy, this writer found many clear, masterfully crafted messages, and believes that taken collectively, Ikeda’s work has the same power and potential as any work of great art to be the catalyst for profound personal transformation...

視る音の量感。触れてくる音の体重。
「ある」や「ない」は人間の中にだけ。

10進法の数字が永遠にエッチングされているステンレス?版から始まり
映像化された数字+電子音なそれっぽいカッコイイインスタレーション。
アミノ酸配列っぽいATCGの高速再生とか。
電子音もノイズというよりはシャッキリ。

研ぎ澄まされ、洗練された混沌。有の集合が生み出す無。それらが整然と並ぶ真白な空間の中を、裸足で漂うと、開放感以上に心地の良い、緊張を味わうことができる。
