Ryoji Ikeda joins four other internationally acclaimed artists in Data/Fields, a media exhibition that explores the visitors' role in the transfer and flow of data. Curated by renowned sound artist Richard Chartier, Ikeda (Japan) is joined by Caleb Coppock (U.S.), Mark Fell (U.K.), Andy Graydon (U.S./Germany) and France Jobin (Canada) whose works together act as hubs of sensory information—sites of signal, noise, presence, and absence.
Ikeda's audiovisual installation data.scan presents an audio-visual relationship relating to large sets of data from two recent meta-scientific investigations that have mapped the human body and the astronomical universe. The horizontal monitor-based data.scan is registered intimately in relation to the viewer’s body. The dialogue of sound and image in data.scan addresses notions of randomness, extremities of scale, and binaries of the visible/audible and invisible/inaudible.
