As part of the Vivid Live Festival, and the rather more obscure yet none the less incredibly fascinating International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA) that Sydney is hosting and failed to tell anyone about, we currently have some of the most fantastic performances and exhibitions in the world occurring on our door step. For example – the Australian premiere of test pattern [No 5] by acclaimed Japanese audio-visual artist Ryoji Ikeda.


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.


Renowned for creating spectacular sound and visual environments, Ikeda’s large-scale contemporary installation test pattern [No 5] 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.


Whilst Ikeda’s free concert, dramatics [ver 2.0] has already sold out, the exhibition is will run until July 1st. This does include some high level strobe lights and loud sound so if you if you do have any health issues, double check you can play with the art beforehand.


Carriageworks is located at 245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh near Redfern.
