Soichiro Mihara


Mihara presents systems that openly engages with the world and interprets them into the “art” of materials and phenomena such as acoustics, bubbles, radiation, rainbows, microbes, moss, air streams, soil and electrons. Since 2011, he has been engaged in projects in and outside Japan to examine the relationship between technology and society.
In recent years, he has been approaching his past activities as “Art of the Air”, an archival experiment based on the categories of vibration, particles, and breathing, in the form of a recipe.
He has won awards including at Ars Electronica, Transmediale, and the Japan Media Arts Festival, and was on the jury of the Prix Ars Electronica in 2019. Since 2022, he has co-organized the event “Ride the Waves on March 11th”. In recent years, he has also been involved in conservation and restoration of sound art and media art for which methodologies have not yet been established.
