This year, my general impression of the entries for this category was that they mostly strike a good balance between technique level and artistic expression. For instance, one can see that OLE Coordinate System is not just a game software style tool, but also a "moving painting", that shows the artist's intention clearly. Similarly, ×man vibration can be interpreted as a "moving sculpture", as it stimulates our imagination by simply allowing us to observe the experiences of the people who put it on. Furthermore, those entries that have the character of child educational software, such as Drawn or Sosu Hockey, are also completed with a refined sense of expression. With the essence of " humor", these works are converting advanced digi tal techniques gent ly and beautifully into analog; this may be the equation of modern media art.

His works with his strong social message within a humorous presentation, such as putting on a radiation detector suit called "Atom Suits" and visiting Chernobyl, are highly appreciated, not only in Japan, but abroad.
