  • Daito Manabe

    Daito Manabe

    Aartist, programmer, and DJ.
    Launched Rhizomatiks in 2006. Specially-appointed professor at Keio University SFC.
    Manabe’s works, which range into a variety of fields, takes a new approach to everyday materials and phenomena. However, his end goal is not simply rich, high-definition realism by recognizing and recombining these familiar elemental building blocks. Rather, his practice is informed by careful observation to discover and elucidate the essential potentialities inherent to the human body, data, programming, computers, and other phenomena, thus probing the interrelationships and boundaries delineating the analog and digital, real and virtual.
