Sydneysiders might remember Tatsuo Miyajima’s massive room installation ‘Death Clock’ from the MCA's popular 2012 exhibition Marking Time, which marked the re-opening of the redesigned building.

The artist is best known for this kind of numbers-based LED installation, and that is the focus of Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything – though his performance works, paintings and drawings also feature in the retrospective, which is on now until March 5 next year.

It's the largest survey of Miyajima's work to date and it promises a visceral experience: a heady mix of lights, colour, technology and Buddhist philosophy.  

Have a sake cocktail and yakitori-style snack at the MCA's themed pop-up Cherry Blossom bar while you're there. The MCA café will also be offering Japanese-style snacks, and they've collaborated with Sydney's School of Life on mindfulness workshops

And don't skip the merch. The MCA Store has a quirky range of Miyajima 'numbers' stockings and socks, plus Miyajima x Maison Balzac scented candles. 

The MCA is open daily 10am-5pm (and till 9pm on Thursdays, although the late closure swaps over to Wednesdays in the new year). Full price tickets for Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything are $22.
