Tatsuo Miyajima at the Museum of Contemporary Art

This is a magical exhibition of digital numbers – floating, swimming, clicking, transforming – in every imaginable permutation. Tatsuo Miyajima “Connect with Everything”includes sculptures, installations, water ponds, windows and rooms by one of Japan’s leading contemporary artists. Watching the train go round the huge pile of coal with its flickering numbers embedded in it is quite mesmerising and references the people cargo trains of Nazi Germany. The room with a ceiling of suspended lights/numbers with cushions to lie in and gaze at the constellations is ethereal. Using a basic building block of digital numbers he creates digital sketches about time, place, space, past , present and future.
