Japanese artist, composer and arch data manipulator Ryoji Ikeda will unveil a new, immersive audio-visual artwork at Store Studios, 180 The Strand in London this October.


Test pattern [N°12] is the latest iteration of Ikeda’s test pattern project, begun in 2006, in which the artist converts data (from music, sound, photo and video) into monochrome binary patterns that are generated in real-time and envelop the viewer in a disorientating, highly-charged kinetic environment.


Probing the essential characteristics of sound and light, Ikeda’s work bridges the worlds of art and music and challenges fundamental preconceptions of both through the intensity of his installations.

It marks the first in a series of VF-commissioned artworks, which will also see film-maker and Kendrick Lamar collaborator Kahlil Joseph present new film Fly Paper as part of his first solo show in NYC.

test pattern [N°12] is one of three site-specific The Store X The Vinyl Factory commissions to appear at Store Studios this autumn, presented alongside Arthur Jafa’s Kanye West-soundtracked video work Love is the Message, the Message is Death and Jeremy Shaw’s sci-fi pseudo-documentary Liminals. All three will run parallel to The Vinyl Factory and Lisson Gallery’s major exhibition Everything At Once.

It follows a series of collaborations, which has seen Ikeda release numerous records with VF (including his 10×10″ Solar System box set and Code Name: A-Z) and stage his extraordinary supersymmetry work at Brewer Street Car Park in 2015.
