Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with everything

November 3, 2016 - March 5, 2017

Tatsuo Miyajima, one of Japan’s most renowned contemporary artists, is known for his sculptures and room-scale installations incorporating light and numbers.

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything encompasses his sculptural works, rooms and environments, and performance videos. Time and its passage are explored through the works and represented visually by multiple, small digital counting devices. Miyajima developed his first customised digital counters in the late 1980s, using light emitting diodes or LEDs. These ‘counter gadgets’ remain central to his art today, their red and green palette expanding in the mid-1990s to include blue, then white, as LED technology developed in and beyond Japan.
