This work, 'datum' was a creative outcome of a collaboration between Hirakawa and the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU). The collaboration was part of an Artist-in-Residency program (AIR) and represented an interdisciplinary effort to bring together artists and scientists in unique ways. The art-science binary is a recurring theme in Hirakawa’s work and manifests as a collision between the imagination and real-time processed computer programming.' datum' is an immersive audio-visual experience in which automated computer coding orchestrates pixelated moving patterns. The imagery forms waves, morphing into alien topographies before momentarily taking on the likeness of landscape or a geometric shape, before dissipating again into the swarm of ever-changing pixels.
