FACT in Liverpool are crowdfunding for the final 10% of critically acclaimed visual artist and electronic composer Ryoichi Kurokawa’s exhibition taking place at their centre in Spring 2016. The team behind the project need you to help them realise this artist’s spectacular vision, which will transport audiences into space through beautifully visual and sonic environments.
Astrophysicists at the Research Institute in the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (CEA, France) have granted Kurokawa the unique opportunity to explore data taken from molecular clouds in space - data which may hold the secrets behind the birth of stars. Using these previously undocumented findings, Kurokawa has developed a new body of work, unfold, and the upcoming exhibition at FACT marks the world premiere of bringing this data to life.
Ryoichi Kurokawa sets out a new phase of his use of space with light and sound, and how different mediums can be merged in space and time as single unit. node 5:5 fills the ACC in Gwangju, South Korea with mesmerising abstract information and imagery, intoxicating the viewer in an unforgettable visual, auditory and spatial experience.
