Born in 1977 in Yamaguchi, Japan.
After graduating Saikyo High School, Junji went on to study English at the Nagoya Foreign Language University. While he studied English literature, he aspired to become a musician and was deeply absorbed in his music. After earning his degree, he got involved in teaching media art as an assistant at the Nagoya Art University’s newly-founded Department of Visual Media, then became a part-time lecturer at the university and also at Daido University.
In 2012, Junji went on to Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS) to pursue his MA study. After finishing the course researching about media art centered on the relationship between computer and body, he remained at school as a staff to administer devices and networks.
Since 2010, Junji has been actively engaged widely as DJ and VJ, as well as producing interactive works and directing moving images for stage performance. He presented his works at such events and exhibitions as “anima-Flip Flap Animation”(Nagoya, 2009), “TAICOCLUB’ 11”(Nagano, 2011), and so forth, and was involved in stage direction for the performance group Kimyo’s “Jonathan” in 2013. In parallel, he also worked as a production engineer for other artists, and developed systems in such works as Tadasu Takamine’s “How Not To Think”(2011) and “Japan Syndrome” series (2011-).
Junji joined the team of YCAM in April 2015. He is responsible for the planning and operation of audio equipment used in YCAM-hosted exhibitions and shows, as well as the software development required for production. While he pushes forward with his work in his hometown where he returned to after 19 years since he graduated high school, he looks for the future of club scene that once existed but vanished in Yamaguchi.
