Artist duo of SEMBO Kensuke and AKAIWA Yae, formed in 1996. While flexibly crisscrossing the realms of digital and analogue, real and network environments, they expose the relationships between technologies and users, implementing various experimental projects in which they create works that reflect the impact of digital media on contemporary society by humorous approaches and innovative perspectives. They have been organizing IDPW and the “Internet Yami-Ichi” since 2012, and operate from their new base in New York since 2015.
