Ryoji Ikeda :: superposition, AUG 5, 2012 preview at ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany
(This video clip is a preview version before the world-premiere at Centre Pompidou Paris in NOV 2012. The work has been and will be constantly updating during the future tour. Tour dates: ryojiikeda.com)
superposition is a project about the way we understand the reality of nature on an atomic scale and is inspired by the mathematical notions of quantum mechanics. Performers will appear in his piece for the first time, performing as operator/conductor/observer/examiners. All the components on stage will be in a state of superposition; sound, visuals, physical phenomena, mathematical concepts, human behaviour and randomness - these will be constantly orchestrated and de-orchestrated simultaneously in a single performance piece.

Alan invited me to make some artwork for his new solo guitar album on Editions Mego. I have not gone down this acid color scheme by encouragement of the artist in a long, long time. And after all it appropriately accompanies the out music on this album. Thanks Alan!
