Described as “one of the best audiovisual installations and a personal favourite of the prix ars electronica 2010” by Jonas Heuer, the rheo: 5 horizons is work by Ryoichi Kurokawa. The audio/visual piece has just won Golden Nicas prize in the Digital Musics & Sound Art category. First created back in 2009 utilising 3 screens in the form of Audiovisual concert (see images below), the new installation is a five screen extravaganza and a must see if you’re making your way to the prix.
Ryoichi Kurokawa’s new work ‘Rheo’ is a new form of audiovisual expression inspired by the constant flux of landscapes. Kurokawa tends to eliminate the boundaries of our physical perception. A minimal, yet chaotic conflux of visual and auditory perception merges into an experience of memory and ambiguity, where virtual and actual images are no longer distinguishable.
