A stunning installation mapping the universe that can be observed from its precise location
Coinciding with the performances of Ryoji Ikeda: concert pieces, a large outdoor audiovisual experience appears in the courtyard of ROHM Theatre Kyoto. From a beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2012 to a 400-meter wall at a salt manufacturing site in Germany and an art museum in France, the radar is a series of site-specific spectacles.
This new iteration features a giant screen, on to which are mapped the images of space that can be observed from the exact latitude and longitude of the installation location, based on a vast database of information. The result is a sophisticated fusion of sound and video presenting a unique opportunity to encounter the interface of our universe, a truly immense space beyond the scope of ordinary perception.
