The youngest artist showing at "Cyber Arts Japan," 29-year-old Yuri Suzuki, is among the generation that grew up immersed in the culture that informs so much of new media art today. He has received honorable mentions in Ars Electronica's interactive art division for two pieces — "Prepared Turntable" (2008) and "Sound Chaser" (2008).

Suzuki — who also happens to be a DJ and a thereminist — holds a Masters in product design from the Royal College of Art in London and is primarily drawn to sound and everything that it offers.

Last year he was particularly busy working collaborations that took him to many locations around the world. For "The Animatic" (2009), shown at the Craft Punk event in Milan, he worked with design collective Household to create a fanciful Rube Goldberg device that literally animates the story behind the Chuck Berry hit "Memphis Tennessee" (as covered by '80s band Silicon Teens).
