The work of Shunji Mitsuyoshi, Japanese the most powerful sculptor, is well known in modern artircles, and MITSUYOSHI.Lab.Shunji Mitsuyoshi started his career as a sculptor in 1990.
He created and presented his art works to the public while studying super-reinforced polymer concrete as a new molding material.
He created a public monument
declared as “an important cultural asset” in his twenties, and followed with
many projects as a futurist artist in a short time.At the age of 30, receiving
the investment of two billion yen, he invented the sensibility computer. He
has had a lot of influence -from the movies to the game business, and founded
his own venture company.
Has capital tie-up with Jim Clark's Silicon Graphics, Inc.
graduating from Art University, he became Visiting Scientist at Stanford University
Bio-Robotics Laboratory, Department of Engineering.
He takes an active part as project leader in the research "Unite the human brain and the sensibility computer" with budget from the Japanese Government.
He is a pioneer who spent ten years inventing “a new area of Computer Science by uniting Psychology and Quantum Mechanics and The General Theory of Relativity" at international society IEEE.
He used the material to create art pieces and wrote and presented theses about it. In 1992 he joined in the project to restore the exterior of the Main Building of Ministry of Justice in Kasumigaseki, Tokyo which is commonly known as "the Red-brick Government Building" and designed its new facade. Based on this experience, he started to study about a new style of formative art to explore his theme of "sculptures where people can live" aiming to combine sculptures with architecture and established "archisculpture" as a new genre of architectural art. Through his activities, he received many awards such as "1991 International Impact Art Festival Prize for the Best Japanese Work" and "1992 Tokyo Exhibition Prize for Modern Art Division". Mitsuyoshi had a turning point in 1995 when he operated a computer for the first time in his life in order to use internet. He created and opened his own homepage already in the next day and became the first Japanese sculptor who was listed and introduced by "YAHOO". About a week after, he created "3D Interactive Virtual City" and expanded his activities in the field of computer. In 1996, Mitsuyoshi started to devote himself to create CG art while he studied advanced artificial intelligence and developed MAIS, the urban super-infrastructure system. As the archisculptor, he was involved in the redevelopment of the East Exist area of Omiya Station as well as designed the Optical Intelligent Tower in Kumamoto Prefecture. In 1997, he founded Mitsuyoshi Laboratory Corporation (MLC) and became President. He worked on the development of 3D CG technology which even drew the attention of Hollywood as well as of artificial intelligence. He also developed the laser 3D formative technology and created a new style of formative art making the best use of polymer technology. On the other hand, he also developed his academic career in various fields; he made a presentation of his thesis at "the Second East Asia Symposium on Polymers in Concrete" in Koriyama City and completed his theorem of theoretical physics, " a theorem of existence and potential" and he discovered a theory of quantitative valuation, "Quantal". He also developed the world's first game software of speech understanding in the field of CG in cooperation with Universe Development Inc. In 1998, Mitsuyoshi produced CG visual for a TV drama by TV Asahi as well as the CG opening sequence "Human Dream" for Shochiku Movies. He was selected to be CG Director for a Shochiku movie called "Floods over Japan" (based on a novel by Sakyo Komatsu) which will be released in 2000. He also studied and developed application software especially utilizing CG and structured a nationwide network of medical systems as well as a basic system for sensitive information processing system. Because of his innovative activities and excellent achievements in a broad range of fields, his outstanding works and products as well as his unique inspirations and ideas, Mitsuyoshi often appears in mass media. Currently he is involved in various projects which mainly apply the advanced digital technology and systems in cooperation with Japanese and foreign companies. is privileged to have been involved in showing his work in the modern art scene on a number of occasions since 1990, the year that he was awarded the Best Prize at the Impact Art Exhibition and the Tokyo Exhibition held at the Kyoto Metropolitan Art Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.
