RYAN STORER BLOG TAKEOVER \ DAY ONE RYOKJI IKEDA Test Pattern [No.5]
Japanese-born, Paris-based electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda presented his project test pattern [No 5] at Carriageworks (Home of Australian Fashion Week) last week. The piece converts various data, text, sounds, photos and movies into an incredible fit of of graphic illuminated binary code, which pulsates up and down a 28 x 8 metre floor space. Immersed in rapid black and white imagery synchronised with a stark and hypnotic series of beeps and glitches. It is an immersive sensory experience that skirts abstract geometrical forms and minimalist aesthetics.
