Ryoji Ikeda the Japanese visual and sound artist, was recently selected by the Armory for its third annual visual art commission in the Wade Thompson Drill Hall.

This is Ikeda’s first major installation in the US and… damn it’s impressive! He has built a giant screen that rests on the ground before rising up like a movie theatre screen.This creates a visual and sonic environment where visitors are submerged in an extreme illustration of projected and synchronized data. The installation uses scale, light, shade, volume, shadow, electronic sounds, and rhythm to flood the senses. In choreographing vast amounts of digital information, Ikeda conjures up a transformative environment in which visitors confront data on a scale that defies comprehension, experiencing the infinite.

If your in New York you have until Saturday to get down to the Park Avenue Armory to check it out
