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.  Relying upon mathematical, abstract processes, she states 'graphical images that are undreamt of appear'. Her luminescent panels and moving image work create protean, elegant shapes that quietly transform the spatial balance of the screen.

Keiko Kimoto (1958-)
Born in Hiroshima City, Japan. Lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.

Keiko Kimoto graduated from the Department of Textile Design, Tama Art University, in 1983. Since 1988, she has been producing art using computerised mathematical methods. From 1997, her research and production have concentrated on the pursuit of 'dynamic expressions'. In July 2004 she began a collaboration with the Aihara Complexity Modelling Project, ERATO, Japan Science and Technology Agency.

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.
