HIYAMA Tatsumi [Japan]
Reason for Award
The robotized (or perhaps anthropomorphized) characters created by the artist always possess a specific function. The artist brilliantly extracts the core essence of that function with a refined sensibility and impressive modeling skills, successfully translating it into each new character. This creative process seems to go beyond artistic expression, to suggest to us new possibilities for the man-machine interface.
