art

YCAM invites media artists from Japan and abroad to produce new pieces of art, and presents these commissioned works at its exhibition facilities. Within the realm of interdisciplinary creative work encompassing art, science and information technology, we put emphasis not only on visual art, but on sound and software art as well. YCAM's "InterLab" department generally co-produces works together with artists, and assists them with program development, research, and the design of hardware and interfaces. The results are then applied and further developed in YCAM's educational programs.

    3rd part of the YCAM-commissioned work series by Ryoji Ikeda
    World premiere of new installation interpreting quantum theory aesthetically


    Artist Ryoji Ikeda has made a great impact worldwide with his installations and expressions using state-of-the-art electronic sounds ranging from the domain of precise bit rate control to public space projects. His new piece "supersymmetry," the 3rd part of the YCAMcommissioned work series, is an installation in which he has approached the limits of the expression of data observation that is his forte as he interprets quantum mechanics and quantum information theory from an aesthetic viewpoint. In the work, he pursues overwhelmingly intensified expression using extensively the studio space of YCAM.


    While the "supersymmetry" is conceived as an installation version of his performance work "superposition", it will be drastically updated as a new work through collaborative production between YCAM and Le lieu unique, scène nationale de Nantes with the support of the City of Nantes and the Ministry of Culture and Communication (France). Unveiled first in Japan, this installation will also be shown around the world.
