About Ryoji Ikeda
Ryoji Ikeda is a leading electronic composer and visual artist who focuses on the essential characteristics of sound itself and those 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.
His works include projects ranging from live performances to installations, books and CD’s such as datamatics (2006-), test pattern (2008-), spectra (2001-), cyclo – a collaborative project with Carsten Nicolai – and superposition (2012-).
He performs and exhibits worldwide at prestigious venues and events such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Singapore art Museum, Ars Electronica Center Linz, Elektra Festival Montreal, Grec and Sonar Festivals Barcelona, Aichi Triennale Nagoya, Palazzo Grassi Venice, Park Avenue Armory New York, Barbican Center London, Museo de Arte Bogota, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, DHC/Art Montreal, Festival d’Automne Paris, Sharjah Biennale, Carriageworks Sydney, Auckland Triennale, MONA Museum Hobart – Tasmania, Ruhrtriennale, Telefonica Foundation Madrid, MoMA New York, Kyoto Experiment Festival, among others.
