The Vinyl Factory commissions striking new work by Ryoji Ikeda

Store X is a new platform for cultural expression and
exchange, and an evolution of record label, print press and
online magazine The
Vinyl Factory
, hoping to support and bring together a
creative community for shared experiences.

Collaborating with some of the most innovative artists and
musicians today, The Vinyl Factory is premiering works at its
curated space, Store Studios, 180 The Strand, with an initial
focus on Ryoji Ikeda’s test pattern [N ̊12] – the latest
iteration of his test pattern project, begun in 2006, in which
he converts data (from music, text, photo and video) into
monochrome binary patterns.

Enveloping you in a disorientating, highly-charged, kinetic
environment, Ikeda’s site-specific installation involves
intense flickering black and white imagery, which appears to
float and convulse in the darkness to a stark and highly
synchronised soundtrack.
