Ryoji Ikeda

Ryoji Ikeda (b. 1966, Japan) is one of Japan's most celebrated electronic composers. Since 1995 he has been making work that investigates the characteristics of sound, exploring frequencies and the fundamentals of data. He has collaborated with a diverse range of practitioners including the choreographer William Forsythe, the Frankfurt Ballet and the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. Ikeda has presented his work internationally, including at the Pompidou Centre, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Nam June Paik Centre, Seoul and more recently at Armory Park Avenue, New York and Barbican Center, London.

data.scan, 2009
data.scan is an attempt to materialise the vast quantities of data surrounding us in our everyday lives. It is part of Ikeda's ongoing data.series, a collection of works that investigates the minutiae and infinite qualities of data. The installation is composed of computational code, with data collected from two investigative studies, one mapping the stars, the other mapping the human body. They present an extreme illustration of information, mixing the comprehensible with a scale that defies comprehension.
