After displaying luminous light into London’s night sky last year for his ‘Spectra’ exhibition, Ryoji Ikeda, the Japan-born artist has come with a new display, ‘Supersymmetry’, to succeed his previous artwork which gained numerous critical acclaim.
Supersymmetry is Ikeda’s first solo exhibition in London. The inspiration behind it comes from his time spent as artist-in-residence at CERN, Europe’s organization for research in Switzerland. The Paris-based sound artist’s new piece is an hypnotic, distorted installation of “colliding, mutating, sound, text and visual data,” in which he uses forty projectors and computers to produce an exhibition worth experiencing.
