”…spectacular, trippy and fun…the transfinite is definitely something to see and experience. Sublime spectacle.” –The New York Times
“Rocks the senses…the Drill Hall…has lately become the playground for artists with outsized imaginations.” –Financial Times
“…a physical manifestation of information in its rawest form.” –Time Out NY
”…an extreme and elaborate visual and sonic environment.” –New York Magazine
Following critically acclaimed installations by Ernesto Neto and Christian Boltanski, Ryoji Ikeda has been selected by the Armory for its third annual visual art commission in the Wade Thompson Drill Hall. Ikeda creates a visual and sonic environment where visitors are submerged in an extreme illustration of projected and synchronized data. His work uses scale, light, shade, volume, shadow, electronic sounds, and rhythm to flood the senses. In choreographing vast amounts of digital information, Ikeda conjures up a transformative environment in which visitors confront data on a scale that defies comprehension, experiencing the infinite.
This installation includes strobe effects.
