Ryoji Ikeda’s micro | macro installation explores the fusion of art and science at Carriageworks.
During July, head to Carriageworks and lay witness to this striking immersive installation of Ryoji Ikeda. Hailing from Japan, this visual artist and composer is renowned for pushing the artistic envelope. Now, in his latest work, the science/art dichotomy is drastically challenged.
Marking Ikeda’s third artistic installation at Carriageworks in Eveleigh, the two giant installations were originally developed during his residency at a renowned science institution in Switzerland – CERN. Running from 10am daily from Wednesday 4th July to Sunday 29th July, head in to absorb two sectioned artworks of epic proportions.
The first is called ‘the planck universe’ (micro) and in a theatrical context, represents the smallest matter in the universe. Taking over 172.8 square metres of Carriageworks’ artistic space, the piece reveals the smallest atoms in the universe by blowing them up to visible proportions.
The second structure, called ‘the planck universe’ (macro) looks at the largest matter in the universe. Displayed on a ten-metre tall projection screen, you’ll quickly find yourself in awe of the sheer epic sized structure.
Entry to this special immersive experience is free, so you’ve got no excuse not to go in and check this out. Need further date night inspo? Check out our guide to these 12 Things You Should be Doing in July.
