Ryoji Ikeda’s new a/v artwork test pattern [N°12] is now open at The Store X



The Store X The Vinyl Factory presents the Japanese artist’s latest multi-sensory installation.

The latest iteration of Ryoji Ikeda’s ongoing test pattern series, test pattern [N°12] is now open at The Store X, 180 The Strand in London.

Commissioned by The Store X The Vinyl Factory, the immersive installation sees Ikeda convert data (from music, sound, photo and video) into monochrome binary patterns that are generated in real-time, and envelop the viewer in a disorientating, highly-charged kinetic environment.

Watch a preview of the work above.
