Japanese visual artist and electronic composer Ryoji Ikeda is known for his installations and live performances that combine visuals and sound. For the international arts festival Ruhrtriennale 2013 in Germany, Ikeda conceived the audiovisual installation Test Pattern [100m Version]. Test Pattern is one of Ryoji Ikedas’s long-term projects. Started in 2008, the work translates the digital data that surround us in everyday life into flickering barcodes, accompanied by an intense rhythmical soundtrack. For the Ruhrtriennale version, the artist transformed one of the largest industrial buildings in Metropole Ruhr, the Krafthalle, into a huge flickr landscape. On the artist’s 100-meter-long projection, the visitor is at the same time viewer and part of the image.
