Celebrated Paris-based Japanese composer and sound artist Ryoji Ikeda shows forth his latest — an intricate triple-screened audiovisual installation derived from the CAD data set of Honda’s all-new five-door Civic. Made possible only by close collaboration with Civic development leader Mitsuru Kariya and a team of five architects and computer programmers, data.anatomy [civic] now culminates in an intriguing 12-minute sensory experience set amid a fashionably abandoned post-industrial power station in East Berlin. Characteristically preoccupied with mathematics and science in the realm of art, Ikeda perpetuates using pure data as both audio and visual sources, and extends his work with datamatics in this curious composition marked with elemental deconstruction and spatial abstraction. His work also explores major themes surrounding sound, graphics and dimension, paying particular attention to how these elements may shape or influence human perception.
