News#4 Exhibition: Ryoji Ikeda π, e, ø

Ryoji Ikeda π, e, ø
A new exhibition by Japan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda at Almine Rech Gallery in London. His performances and exhibitions always come highly recommended.
The exhibition’s title π, e, ø stands for three important mathematical constants:
- π (pi, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter)
- e (the base of the natural logarithm)
- ø (phi, golden ratio: a+b/a = a/b), all of which are infinite.
Infinity has perplexed many but also greatly inspired artists. Ikeda endeavours to reconcile the essence and idea of infinity through various practices and medium and to orchestrate these into a single symphonic materiality.
