Group of artists

"exonemo" is an art unit of Kensuke Sembo and Yae Akaiwa. Since 1996, they have dealt with many experimental projects that can be seen only on the web. In 2000, their installation was first introduced in a special section at Rotterdam Film Festival. After that, featuring their unique style of connecting the web and the real space, "exonemo" participated in many exhibitions both at home and abroad such as Istanbul Biennale, Roppongi Crossing, and ARS Electronica (Austria). They are currently expanding the sphere of their activities; live performance at Pompidou Center in Paris by using musical instruments of their own making, and managing the Tokyo chapter of "dorkbot," a worldwide community "doing strange things with electricity." They won the grand prize of the Net Section of ARS Electronica in 2006. In 2008 "UN-DEAD-LINK" was held in Basel, Switzerland as their first solo exhibition abroad. Their activities are based in Tokyo and http://www.exonemo.com
