Biography

In 2001 Aoineko was one of 30 web artists worldwide asked to participate in the Biennal de Valencia art festival in southern Spain . Their submission, subterranean , garnered praise in Spain ‘s chic art circles and was also exhibited in September of that year at the National Museum of Art in Rome . Also in 2001, Aoineko released a one-minute short film entitled “Fragile Machines.” The film gave Aoineko so many ideas that they went back to the drawing board and started anew on a vastly expanded version.

In 2002 Aoineko received worldwide recognition for their online art project superelectronic . Joshua Davis, of praystation.com, is considered by many to be the most famous web designer in the world, and was asked to judge Canon’s 2002 Digital Creator’s Contest. He had this to say about Aoineko’s entry:

“Superelectronic is interesting as a mix of many trends… Here we see ten different styles smashed into one super-aesthetic. It is really cool to see an attempt at a new interpretive form of different aesthetics happening on the Net right now.”

The contest division’s other judge, Tota Hasegawa, of the famed Tomato Interactive firm, added this:

“The creator of this site mixes up so many different graphic styles that it’s hard to believe it was done by a single person.”

At the same time, online graphic design magazine k10k.net celebrated the original 1 minute Fragile Machines short with a re-release as the main feature of their issue 116. As a result of the Canon win, Superelectronic was exhibited internationally in Tokyo at the Aoyama Spiral, and in the US at New York University and UCLA.
