Soon after UJINO graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts in 1988, he started to produce and present sound sculpture series “Love Arm” with electric products. From 2004, his practice stems from the idea to adopt ’rotating motor’ as an icon to symbolize the late 20th century, when mass consumption society rapidly started to take over, and claims ’Research on the material world’ through the artistic lens. The recent project “The Rotators” employs a DIY method to combine technologies with everyday products – home appliances, automobiles, furnitures and used records – all motor-operated, as his artworks of sound sculpture and performance. He previously showcased his artworks in the solo exhibitions internationally along with biennales and curated exhibitions.
