Ryoji Ikeda brings his large scale artwork to Sydney with 'The Radar'. The Japanese born, Paris based artist is known for his massive projections that combine both pure audio and visual media, creating mathematically precise live performances and installations.

'The Radar' is a looping series of images that separate the exhibition space into a grid, with radar lines that sweep across periodically, leaving highlighted marks in its wake against the dark background, like a ship slowly moving across a deep ocean.

The radar arm then sweeps back through, consuming and replacing the marks endlessly. The low tones that accompany the work create an almost hypnotic sound effect. The audience is able to interact with the work by standing in front of the projection and allowing the perpetually moving arm to pass over them.
