Ryota Kuwakubo creates devices that spark the imagination. There are simple, elegant and explore the relationships between user and machine, analog and digital, and how we manipulate data as it's transmitted and received. His breakthrough project was 'Bitman' (1998-99).

Here he presents 'Nikodama' (2010), mass produced sets of synchronised blinking eyes that can turn an inanimate object into a friendly face. They continue our ongoing research at Inspace into the anthropomorphisation of the non-human which began with 'Cybraphon' (2009).
