Ryoji Ikeda is a leading Japanese visual artist, sonic sound composer and Prix Arts Electronica Collide@CERN 2014 award-winner. His residency at the world’s largest particle physics laboratory enhanced his artistic interest in quantum dimensions and mathematical principles. data.tron (3k version) is part of Ikeda’s datamatics project, a series of experiments in various forms that seek to materialise pure data.
Via an immersive installation using light projection, computer graphics, dynamic visual effects and electronic noise, visitors will experience the vast universe of data in the infinite between 0 and 1. Intense yet minimal graphic renderings of data progress through multiple dimensions, as scrolling numeric digits give the impression of moving through a micro-cosmos.
Ikeda’s works have been featured in major museums, performing venues and festivals around the world and are highly regarded for their exploration of the tangent between music and mathematics, science and art.

The Gardens Between is a single player adventure puzzle game about memories, friendship and time.

Lost in a mysterious realm where cause and effect are malleable, the friends find that time flows in all directions. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and reach the apex of each isle. Follow the duo as they unpack and explore their significant moments spent together, lighting up constellations and illuminating threads of a bittersweet narrative.

A short documentary about Troy Innocent, a 2018 Melbourne Art Trams artist.
This artwork makes one of Melbourne’s trams playable—literally. While the geometric imagery is an artwork in itself, an augmented reality app reveals another layer of animation and sound when the passing tram is viewed from the camera of a phone. This plays a musical score generated by the app as it detects fragments of the design.
Playable cities connect people and place, appropriating urban environments and infrastructure—such as the Melbourne tram—through playful takeover, changing and renegotiating its meaning. Playful citizens see their town or city in a new way, feeling a new sense of connection, and sensing new ways it could be.
