OzAsia Festival presents the Australian premiere exhibition of data.tron [3K version] by Ryoji Ikeda. Ryoji Ikeda is a leading Japanese visual artist, sonic sound composer and Prix Arts Electronica Collide@CERN 2014 award-winner. His works have been featured in major museums, arts centres and festivals around the world and are highly regarded for their exploration of the tangent between music and mathematics, science and art.
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.
