The Japanese visual artist and composer ventures to the extremes of the universe in these two large-scale installations

This is Ryoji Ikeda's third major audio-visual project at Carriageworks and another step forward in his exploration into the intersection between art and science. In fact, the two installations were developed during a residency at Switzerland's CERN, European Organisation for Nuclear Research. 

One is called 'the planck universe [micro]' and represents the smallest matter in the universe in a theatrical setting, taking over 172.8 square metres of the Carriageworks space. The other is called 'the planck universe [macro]' and shows the largest matter in the universe on a ten-metre tall projection screen. 

Ikeda started his career as a DJ and sound artist, and is known for his melding of striking visual elements – he's worked with projections and light since the 1990s – with electronic music, all coordinated with mathematical precision.
