Ikeda’s work focuses on the essential characteristics of sound itself and that of visuals as light by means of both mathematical precision, and mathematical aesthetics. He orchestrates sound, visuals, materials, physical phenomena, and mathematical notions into immersive live performances and installations.

A fascinating and comprehensive journey through Ryoji’s artistic processes, background, and projects, continuum is a hardback monograph spanning 224-pages with 170 images and illustrations, alongside an in-depth artist conversation and long-form essays.

The new edition of continuum is published to coincide with the opening of Ikeda’s forthcoming, immersive exhibition at 180 The Strand — head here for tickets and more information.

Ikeda has also released a new album called technicolors, featuring soundscapes from the exhibition.
