Ryoji Ikeda's Superposition

Friday, October 17, 7:00 p.m.

The Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium Show location on map

(US Premiere)

“superposition throws the historical work of Galileo, Hooke, Jenny and Chladni through a highly technical modern prism, raising philosophical questions around human existence through our modern understanding of the universe at atomic level—with what feels like a fearful outcome.” —Futuresequence

A multimedia music, visual, and theater work at the intersection of art and science, superposition, inspired by the subatomic world, mines the notion that it is not possible to fully describe the behavior of a single particle except in terms of probabilities. The work is an immersive experience, an orchestrated journey through sound, language, physical phenomena, mathematical concepts, human behavior, and randomness, all simultaneously arranged and rearranged in a theatrical arc that obliterates the boundaries between music, visual arts, and performance.

This program is presented in collaboration with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), as part of FIAF’s Crossing the Line Festival 2014.

Also available on Saturday, October 18th at 7 pm.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
