German artist Carsten Nicolai has inaugurated his audiovisual installation titled Unidisplay at HangarBicocca in Milan. The 40-meter long piece has the ability to make sound perceptible on an optical level with minimal aesthetics translated into variations of black and white along with acoustics. There’s a propensity towards abstraction and the infinite in this installation, as well as play with the concepts of time and space. Brings to mind Ryoji Ikeda‚Äôs The Transfinite.

I find these kinds of exhibit incredibly soothing in person, in addition to enjoying the immersive quality.

You can see some of the audiovisuals in the video below:

    Fantastic Mr Nicolai/Noto…
    Men like Strzeminski or Russolo would surely loved his job.
