Supersymmetry by Ryoji Ikeda at The Vinyl Factory (London, England)

April 23, 2015 - May 31, 2015

The Vinyl Factory is excited to announce the UK premiere of a new work by international artist-composer Ryoji Ikeda that explores music and visual art through mathematics and physics.

This new piece is an immersive, disorientating installation of colliding, mutating, sound, text and visual data, utilising forty projectors and computers.

An intense exploration of the intersections between music and visual art through mathematics, quantum mechanics and logic, the work draws on Ikeda’s residency at Centre For Nuclear Research (CERN). The world’s largest particle physics research institute, CERN is currently testing ‘supersymmetry’, a theoretical mathematical model that helps explain why particles have mass and the basis for Ikeda’s work.
