Ryoji Ikeda presents micro / macro

Installations by Japanese electronic composer and visual artist, Ryoji Ikeda, will be on show free to the public at Carriageworks in Sydney from 5 to 29 July, 10am to 6pm. Two monumental-sized works created during a residency at Switzerland’s CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, explore the intersection between art and science. Ikeda draws understanding from, and invites an introspective look at the universe bringing what is beyond our reachable limits into our own experiential sphere. the planck universe [micro] depicts the minute elements of nature amplified to human scale, while a ten-metre high projection wall hosting the planck universe [macro] portrays nature scanned from human into cosmological scale. Ikeda presents an elaborate and immersive encounter with the outer limits of the cosmos.
