Rintaro Hara (b. 1973 in Yokohama, Japan) has a BA from Tokyo Zokei University, Japan and an MA from Sandberg, Netherlands. Rintaro works with kinetic installations using balls, motors, and light to representing digital images in an analog way. He has exhibited in Japan, Germany, Iceland and the US.

During his stay, Rintaro will be working on his exhibition in the Forum Box gallery. In his installation ‘Ascending and Descending’, Rintaro illustrates the duality of these natural phenomena by creating a physical space the audience can experience. He often works by creating site-specific installations which utilize the characteristics of the exhibition space and has lately been working on astronomy phenomena, in particular, using lights, wooden structures, and mechanics.
