UJINO

UJINO was born in 1964 in Tokyo. Since the 1990s, UJINO created a number of sound sculptures including LOVE ARM series and made live performances. In 2004 the artist initiated his best known The Rotators, a project of sound/sculpture/performance installations made of omnipresent products like electric home appliances, automobiles, furniture, old records and decorative lights combined and transformed to function like an automatic rhythm playing system. This project has lead to a number of exhibition and performance opportunities inside and outside Japan. In 2013 his first Japanese museum solo exhibition POP/LIFE was held at The Hakone Open-Air Museum, presenting extensive selection of works from his entire career and attracted much attention.
