With Body Paint, exonemo translates their 2014 series of the same name, in which they displayed human portraits directly onto 40" LCD monitors, to custom video prints for the first time. The work uses body painting to examine human physical definitions and physicality in a world of networked information devices.
The Japanese artist unit "exonemo" (by SEMBO Kensuke and AKAIWA Yae) was formed in 1996 on the Internet. Their experimental projects are typically humorous and innovative explorations of the paradoxes of digital and analog computer networks and actual environments in our lives. Their The Road Movie won the Golden Nica for Net Vision category at Prix Ars Electronica 2006. They have been organizing the IDPW gatherings and "Internet Yami-Ichi" since 2012. They live and work in New York since 2015.
