Ryoji Ikeda has taken a Honda Civic and distilled it down to pure data. Structure, motion, tuning and other data are reinterpreted to become something of a living engineering diagram. It’s beautiful stuff, considering the subject is a machine.
Using the entire data set of a Honda Civic, Ikeda created an audiovisual composition on a three screen projection where the car is broken down and transformed into a series of data visualizations and sound pieces—generative blueprints—where numbers and images cascade across the screens. “It’s like a human, the many organs in it, and that inspired me,” says Ikeda in the video when talking about the car.
