Data.anatomy [civic] by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda is an incredible audio visual installation. He is Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist and in his new work he used the entire data set of a Honda Civic to create a composition on a three screen projection.
He took the car, broke it down and transformed it into a series of data visualizations and sound pieces where numbers and images cascade across the screens. Ikeda describes the car as “like a human, the many organs in it, and that inspired me,”
Like his other work this installation takes the data and presents it back to us in a way we’re unfamiliar with, giving form to the invisible as the object goes from one of physicality to one of abstraction, allowing us to contemplate it in ways we may not have before.
Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda focuses on the essential characteristics of sound itself and that of visuals as light by means of both mathematical precision and mathematical aesthetics. Ikeda has gained a reputation as one of the few international artists working convincingly across both visual and sonic media. He elaborately orchestrates sound, visuals, materials, physical phenomena and mathematical notions into immersive live performances and installations.
