Glitch art installation: data.path by Ryoji Ikeda

Perfect blend of audio-visual:

"One of Japan’s leading electronic composers, Ryoji Ikeda (born 1966) manipulates sound in various "raw" states, often using frequencies at the very limits of human hearing. Occupying a unique soundworld between ambient electronica, sinewave noise and glitch beats, Ikeda’s music has expanded into art contexts more extensively than any of his contemporaries."

Musicless Musicvideo / THE PRODIGY - firestarter. by Mario Wienerroither

The Prodigy’s video for seminal ’90s dance hit Firestarter was always unsettling. But remove the music, replace the siren-like samples, and strip away the cycling bass loop, and you’re left with something even weirder.

Book Machine project with OneStarr Press at Centre Pompidou, Paris (2013). By Mika Tajima:

The Book Machine project deals with production after writing — post script. These are the immaterial activities that follow the labor of writing: design, communication, discourse, and knowledge production. What is materialized from these labors is a book presented in a physical structure all shaping the encounter with the contents of the publication.
