Australian Premiere | Exclusive to Adelaide

Ryoji Ikeda is a leading Japanese visual artist, sonic sound composer and Prix Arts Electronica Collide@CERN 2014 award-winner. His residency at the world's largest particle physics laboratory enhanced his artistic interest in quantum dimensions and mathematical principles. data.tron (3k version) is part of Ikeda's datamatics project, a series of experiments in various forms that seek to materialise pure data.

Via an immersive installation using light projection, computer graphics, dynamic visual effects and electronic noise, visitors will experience the vast universe of data in the infinite between 0 and 1. Intense yet minimal graphic renderings of data progress through multiple dimensions, as scrolling numeric digits give the impression of moving through a micro-cosmos.

Ikeda's works have been featured in major museums, performing venues and festivals around the world and are highly regarded for their exploration of the tangent between music and mathematics, science and art.

Don't miss this extraordinary audiovisual concert which combines abstract and mimetic presentations of matter, time and space – and invites you to perceive the invisible multi-substance of data that permeates our world.

TUE - FRI 4pm - 9pm
SAT 1pm - 9pm

Ryoji's works exceed - by design - the limits of human rationality, intelligibility and cognition, yet are utterly beguiling in their mysterious and troubling evocations. Editoriale Dumas
