Test pattern [N°12]




Japanese artist, composer and arch data manipulator Ryoji Ikeda has unveiled a new, immersive audio-visual artwork at Store Studios, 180 The Strand in London this October. commissioned by The Store X The Vinyl Factory.





test pattern [N°12] is the latest iteration of Ikeda’s test pattern project, begun in 2006, in which the artist converts data (from music, sound, photo and video) into monochrome binary patterns that are generated in real-time and envelop the viewer in a disorientating, highly-charged kinetic environment.

Probing the essential characteristics of sound and light, Ikeda’s work bridges the worlds of art and music and challenges fundamental preconceptions of both through the intensity of his installations.
