Kentaro Yamada and Ronin Cho are involv
ed in the crafting of technological materials to articulate certain ideas a

sts are conscious of how the properties of the medium can enhance shared co
mmunication and experience of the works. This approach to technology intend

“We cannot escape from meanings. I am learning to b e playful with meanings.” Kentaro Yamada.
“Through my work I ai m to challenge the audience to interpret an idea by accepting the fact that
not everyone thinks as they do.” Ronin Cho
