The Australian premiere of test pattern [No 5] by acclaimed Japanese audio-visual artist Ryoji Ikeda. Internationally renowned for creating spectacular sound and visual environments, Ikeda’s large-scale contemporary installation is an immersive audio-visual installation inspired by computer programming data which converts information into barcode and binary patterns. Comprising five visual projectors that will illuminate a floor screen measuring over 30 metres long and 10 metres wide, test pattern [No 5] will submerge visitors in an extreme illustration of projected and synchronized data and sound.

Born in Japan, Ikeda has performed internationally to critical acclaim at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, the Barbican Centre in London, Grec Festival in Barcelona and the Singapore Art Museum. Presented by Carriageworks and Vivid Sydney in collaboration with ISEA2013.
