Artist Ryota Kuwakubo, who was born in 1971, and is a professor at IAMAS, studied contemporary art at the University of Tsukuba and began producing works using electricity from 1998. The artist crosses different areas, from electronic devices to interactive installations, and close-ups of events occurring at various boundaries between digital and analog, humans and machines, senders and receivers of information. Through these activities, he created his own style called 'device art'. He presented his works at major art museums and art festivals, including The State Hermitage Museum, and the Ars Electronica Festival in Austria. He focuses on creating works that allow viewers to pour out their inner experiences.
