Ryoji Ikeda at Eye Film Museum

Nearly completely lost myself at the Ryoji Ikeda exhibition at Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam.

Stunning, delightful chaos. Warm, calming aural and visual baths of sound and data abstractions on all scales. A tribute to John Cage mixed in. Rounding the corner and coming face to face with The Point of No Return was like stumbling into the final scene of a running sci-fi film with little time to get out.

I’m gathering essentials. Plan to go back. Stay.
