Ryoji Ikeda // Transfinite

Very jealous of any characters out there in NYC.

Ryoji Ikeda, one of the world’s leading data-artists working with sound and visuals has recently installed his enormous Transfinite piece at The Armory‘s Drill Hall.

First running for two whole years in Linz in Austria (2009-2010), Transfinite is the latest in the data.series which began with Raster Noton releasing a selection of audible works on CD in 2005, and continued with several touring installations which included the stunning data.tron. The current piece is literally immersive and is made up of pixels each precisely calculated and positioned: “a combination of pure mathematics and the vast sea of data present in the world”. Not to be missed, though if Ikeda continues the existing trend, it is likely that a bigger and better version will land in a warehouse near you soon.
