Ryoji Ikeda's new large-scale audiovisual installation data.tecture [5 SXGA+ version] presents a total immersive and sensory experience to the visitors.

A single large video image is projected by 5 projectors directly onto the floor of LABoral's large gallery space, which will immerse visitors' body, sight and hearing.

data.tecture [5 SXGA+ version] is an artistic re-orchestration of Ikeda's acclaimed audiovisual concert piece datamatics [ver.2.0] (2006-) that explores the potential to perceive the invisible multi-substance of data that permeates our world. Using pure data as a source for sound and visual compositions, datamatics [ver.2.0] combines abstract and mimetic presentations of matter, time and space in a powerful and breathtakingly accomplished work. From 2D sequences of patterns derived from hard drive errors and studies of software code, the imagery transforms into dramatic, rotating views of the universe in 3D, whilst the final scenes add a further dimension as four-dimensional mathematical processing opens up spectacular and seemingly infinite vistas.

Driven by the primary principles of datamatics [ver.2.0], but conceptually deconstructing and re-composing its original elements – transformations, visualizations and sonifications of a vast amount of scientific data set such as DNA human genome, astronomical coordinates of stars in the universe, molecular structures of protein and even data architecture of datamatics itself – this new work data.tecture [5 SXGA+ version] creates a kind of meta-datamatics. Ikeda employs real-time programme computations and data scanning to create a further abstraction of the original datamatics. The technical dynamics of the piece, such as its extremely fast frame rates and variable bit depths, continue to challenge and explore the thresholds of our perceptions.
