A troubling poet of the digital age

If I am to give only one reason for my short trip to Montreal this time, it must be Ryoji Ikeda's very first survey exhibition in North America at DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art.  His framed works, light boxes, sculptural works, works on paper as well as audiovisual projects are presented.  His digital prints of the irrational numbers π, e and φ are pretty much what I've been exploring to work on.


Unfortunately, photography was not allowed.  (I don't understand why a group of kids were allowed to take pictures after pictures while posing in front of the projections though.)  I can only show you this short clip from 's youtube channel:
