This audio visual work from established Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda presents intense flickering black and white imagery, which floats and convulses in darkness to a stark and powerful, highly synchronised soundtrack.

test pattern is the third audiovisual concert in Ikeda's datamatics series, an art project that explores the potential to perceive the invisible multi–substance of data that permeates our world. The velocity of the moving images is ultra–fast, some hundreds of frames per second, so that the
work provides a performance test for the audio and visual devices, as well as a response test for the audience's perceptions. We are very proud to - for the first time - invite Ikeda to TodaysArt, presenting this renowned work in a monumental space: the Atrium of The Hague's city hall.
