Blurring the boundaries between the fine and applied arts.

Is This Art? is a fascinating series featuring interviews with leading practitioners and conceptual artists from media, performance, visual art, music and sound.

KEIKO KIMOTO

Tokyo-based Keiko Kimoto employs mathematical tools and computer programming methods such as the visualization tools of Nonlinear Dynamical System to create Imaginary Numbers. Kimoto seeks to avoid representational context, instead, she strives to visually express transitions in the world that are not replications of nature as seen by the human eye. Kimoto has exhibited her work throughout Japan, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Tokyo Art Projects, Inc/Mika Gallery, New York, hosted a solo exhibition of her work in 2004. In late 2005, Kimoto will commence lecturing in the Department of Visual Communication Design at Musashino Art University.

PETER CALLAS

PETER CALLAS has utilised a wide variety of electronic and digital media for over two decades to create an ongoing series of cultural 'portraits', making work from varied locations, often during sustained periods of residence, in locations such as Papua New Guinea, Japan, the United States, Germany, Brazil, and India, as well as Australia. In 2002-03 Asialink toured 'Peter Callas: anti-terrain', a major solo exhibition of Callas' video and photomedia works, in art museums throughout Asia including the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai, India, the China Millennium Monument, Beijing, and Galeri Petronas, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
