In­stal­la­tions by Ja­panese elec­tronic com­poser and vis­ual artist, Ry­oji Ikeda, will be on show free to the public at Car­riage­works in Syd­ney from 5 to 29 July, 10am to 6pm. Two mon­u­men­tal­sized works cre­ated dur­ing a res­i­dency at Switzer­land’s CERN, the Euro­pean Or­gan­i­sa­tion for Nu­clear Re­search, ex­plore the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween art and science. Ikeda draws un­der­stand­ing from, and in­vites an in­tro­spec­tive look at the uni­verse bring­ing what is be­yond our reach­able lim­its into our own ex­pe­ri­en­tial sphere. the planck uni­verse [mi­cro] de­picts the minute el­e­ments of na­ture am­pli­fied to hu­man scale, while a ten-me­tre high pro­jec­tion wall host­ing the planck uni­verse [macro] por­trays na­ture scanned from hu­man into cos­mo­log­i­cal scale. Ikeda presents an elab­o­rate and im­mer­sive en­counter with the outer lim­its of the cos­mos.
