Ryoji Ikeda

What would it feel like to be stuck inside a particle accelerator? That’s the scenario posed by Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda in his hyper-sensory new solo exhibition supersymmetry.

The installation, a UK premiere in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, sees the artist draw on inspiration from his 2014 residency at Cern, the world’s biggest particle physics research centre. Based in Geneva, the institute is home to the Large Hadron Collider, the titanic experiment in which two high-energy particle beams are made to collide at almost the speed of light.
