Further information

This work, datum was a creative outcome of a collaboration between Hirakawa and the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IMPU). The collaboration was part of their Artist-in-Residency program (AIR) and represented an interdisciplinary effort to bring together artists and scientists in unique ways. The art-science binary is a recurring theme in Hirakawa’s work and manifests as a collision between the imagination and real-time processed computer programming. datum is an immersive audio-visual experience in which automated computer coding orchestrates pixelated moving patterns, accompanied by a score by Japanese sound artist Satoshi Hama. The imagery forms waves, morphing into alien topographies before momentarily taking on the likeness of landscape or a geometric shape, before dissipating again into the swarm of ever-changing pixels.
