The Armory: Ryoji Ikeda – The Transfinite.

The Armory: Ryoji Ikeda – The Transfinite.  Following critically acclaimed installations by Ernesto Neto and Christian Boltanski, Ryoji Ikeda has been selected by the Park Avenue Armory for its third annual visual art commission. Ikeda creates a visual and sonic environment where visitors are submerged in an extreme illustration of projected and synchronized data. His work uses scale, light, shade, volume, shadow, electronic sounds, and rhythm to flood the senses. In choreographing vast amounts of digital information, Ikeda conjures up a transformative environment in which visitors confront data on a scale that defies comprehension, experiencing the infinite. The Transfinite installation is on view until June 11. Ryoji Ikeda 
is a Japanese sound and visual artist who lives and works in Paris, this is his first major installation in the United States.
