Kensho is a Japanese designer and researcher with a background in aerospace engineering. He holds BEng (2013) and MEng (2015) degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the University of Tokyo, where he explored the interactivity of indoor aerial robots which can navigate without the aid of external sensors or computation resources. His practice also includes several art and design works which embrace the element of physical movement as the core of its aesthetics. In 2014 Kensho was certified as Super Creator by IPA (Information Technology Promotion Agency) and METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) of Japan. His works have been presented at conferences and exhibitions such as SIGGRAPH and Milan Design Week.
For his PhD at School of Design Research of Royal College of Art, he develops the pervasive interest underlying his prior works in both technological and creative domains and concentrates on the aesthetic and empathic potential of motion in the context of design.
