Ryoji Ikeda – The Solar System

Ryoji Ikeda - The Solar System - Box Set - 2016

Ryoji Ikeda, The Solar System - Box Set, 2016 © The Vinyl FactoryJapan’s leading electronic composer and visual artist, Ryoji Ikeda created a incredibly special and hugely collectable box set consisting of ten 10-inch vinyl records only available in this limited edition. Each record contains a unique sine wave with a different frequency correlating to a different planet in the solar system. Housed in a cloth bound, custom-made clamshell box with a custom made spindle holding the vinyl in place, each record interspersed with screen printed PVC prints.

This edition is the latest collaboration between The Vinyl Factory and Ryoji Ikeda following the UK premiere of Ryoji Ikeda’s supersymmetry installation, which exhibted at The Vinyl Factory Space at Brewer Street Car Park from in May 2015. Ikeda's supersymmetry was a fully immersive auditory and visual experience - an artistic vision of the reality of nature, an interpretation of quantum mechanics and quantum information theory from an aesthetic viewpoint. The work draws on his exchanges with scientists and engineers during his stay at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
