Rioji Ikeda


This fixed position video of Ikeda's Transfinite installation at the New York Armory in 2011 gives some sense of the immersive, physiological impact of the art's recent works. Pitching both sound a vision at the edges of perceptive range, Ikeda compels a highly focused level of attention from an audience. The speed, pitch and precision of information pushes participants to acute states of involvement. Such intensity is unfamiliar and rarely experienced in a dedicated environment. The work provokes thoughts about how and what we sense: do we subliminally edit experiences which challenge us?
