Born in Hiroshima Prefecture in 1958; lives and works in Tokyo.
Kimoto graduated from Tama Art University. From the end of the 1980s, she began creating sculptural works that applied self-taught mathematical methods. Since the end of the 1990s, she has been exploring new approaches such as using nonlinear systems to render dynamic expressions. In 2003, she published a collection of works titled Imaginary Numbers (Kosakusha). She was also the member of the Aihara Complexity Modelling Project (2005-2008; part of the Exploratory Research for Advanced Technology researching funding program of Japan Science and Technology Agency) and FIRST, Aihara Innovative Mathematical Modelling Project (2010-2013; funded by the same). She has presented work both within and outside of Japan, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo and the Lexus pavilion at Milan Design Week. In 2006, she received the Grand Prize in the Art Division of the 10th Japan Media Arts Festival. At KENPOKU ART 2016, she will be presenting two works that show different aspects of expression: screening of a video at the Hitachi Civic Center’s planetarium, and an installation at the Reijunkan in Daigo that includes video data rendered onto Japanese washi paper.
