Born in Kanagawa, Japan in 1984. Artist. He constructs installations by intervening in ready-made products or existing information systems that incorporate today’s technology, such as spaces where Segways are used to view artworks and drawing machines that use machine learning systems, and combining them in ways that divert or misuse them. The public, political, and human relations that advanced technology can have are considered and critiqued through his work.
