Markus Kison

Markus Kison is a digital artist based in Berlin. By using real-time data he is discussing social contexts. These emerge from the relationship between physical objects and their inherent digital information layers. At present Kison is researching on the role of the contemporary human being in a digital augmented world. He has exhibited in various museums worldwide, received international awards and given talks at art and design conferences.

Masaki Fujihata

Fujihata started out in the 1980s working in the fields of computer graphics and animation. Subsequently, in tandem with the dramatic developments achieved in digital technologies, he began pursuing their possibilities in artistic expression, boldly moving into uncharted territory in the world of art.

Hisworks, imbued with the special features unique to the newest technologies in interactive art, virtual reality and networking, raised a variety of issues that had never emerged in earlier media of expression, and in the process Fujihata breathed fresh new life into art. In his every endeavor, his stance, to see through to the core essence, always remains constant, however, as he earnestly probes fundamental questions having to do, for example, with human perception and awareness, and why humans communicate. The works and projects that are born from his unique philosophy and playful ideas are highly acclaimed both in Japan and abroad.

He got a GoldenNIKA award from Ars Electronica Festival in 1996, and received an Award from the Ministry of Education in the Art Encouragement Prizes in 2010.

The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM]

The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] opened in November 2003 as an art complex integrating exhibition halls, theatre, film theatre space, and the Yamaguchi City Central Library. On a foundation of media technology incorporating computers and communications, the Center hosts various exhibitions of media art, theater and dance performances, movie screenings, concerts, as well as workshops and lectures.

YCAM produces and presents new original works aimed at creating new forms of artistic expression in connection with media technology and the human body.

Artists from Japan and abroad engage in productive work in collaboration with the specialized research and development team “YCAM InterLab”. This approach has so far resulted in a great number of works that have gained a high international reputation, have exhibited/performed around the world.

In addition to produce commissioned pieces, YCAM has also played an active role in cultivating creative and research environments to support the art & technology of the next generation. Since 2011, we have carried out Reactor for Awareness in Motion, a research project for developing tool for dance creation and education, with Yoko Ando, a dancer from The Forsythe Company, a leading contemporary dance company and, with YoshitoOnishi, Satoru Higa, Motoi Shimizu, Kyle McDonald, programmers from Japan and the US.
