The Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima has fused Buddhist contemplation of the spirit and the journey to death with contemporary materials and a digital bent, for a new exhibition at London’s Lisson Gallery. LED screens count back and forth from one to nine on raw circuit boards, triggered through a program developed by Miyajima and Takashi Ikegami, an expert on digital intelligence. The program, called “corps sans organe” generates number sequences based on other circuits in the system. The exhibition also includes the first viewing of Life Palace (Tea Room), a red-leather padded chamber that viewers can enter one at a time, in order to experience a moment of digital hypnosis and contemplate the themes of the show. Check out some images of the show above.
