Masayuki Akamatsu, Ph.D (Fine Arts)

Masayuki Akamatsu is a media producer, born in Hyogo, Japan, in 1961. He studied psychology at Kobe University and worked as a social worker for the city of Kobe until 1997, when he started to work at the International Academy of Media Arts and Sciences as an associate professor. From 2002, he became a professor at the same university. Akamatsu received the degree of Ph.D at the Graduate School of Art of the Kyoto University of Arts in 2006.

Since the 1980’s he made use of the computer to create works not only in the field of music, but also in the field of video arts and networking, focusing on the relation between an artwork and the audience and the autonomy of an artwork itself.

His characteristic works include: “incubator” (2000), which projects audio-visual events with fifty computers; “Time Machine!” (2002-), which visualizes the audience’s experience of time in real time; “Flesh Protocol” (2002), which controls the performer’s body with a computer; “Earthen Bodied Augur” (2007), which realizes the audio-visual improvisational dance using an image analysis. He has published many books including “Max Textbook ” (Ritto-Music, 2009, co-author) and “iPhone SDK Textbook” (Syuwa System, 2009).Akamatsu is also active in performing live electronic music. He has not only soloed but also participated in many sessions and played as a member of “The Breadboard Band”.

Recently, Akamatsu’s research is concerning the expression of mobile devices and their personal and social influence. He has produced over thirty iPhone applications and published them at the App Store. His mobile artworks include: “Sekai Camera” (2008-, Tonchidot), which realizes a social AR system, and “Snowflakes” (2008-) and “Okeanos Buoys” (2010), which project audio-visual experiences over dozens of iPhones.
