6 Code – A work from an code artist
Ryoji Ikeda is a famous Japanese sound artist. In this work, visual and auditory together form this large-scale installation art work. People take off their shoes and participate in this large-scale work. The color of the black and white strips on the screen is completely determined by the audience. As the audience walks or stands on the screen, the surrounding sound will be electronic based on the position of the audience. Sound, every viewer is always affecting the difference between the sound that will be emitted at the same time and the screen display.
In this work, the visual rendering element becomes part of the sound visualization and is converted to a person-controlled image that controls the change of the sound through the transformation of the image. In a dimly lit indoor environment, huge illuminating art works combined with complex electrical sounds create a space full of great sensory stimuli.
