Nam June Paik Award

This year competing for the award are two Japanese - Daito Manabe who describes himself as an artist programmer, designer, DJ, VJ and composer and Ei Wada a.k.a. Crab Feet who is sound, music and media artist. The latter I happen to see performing at Japan Media Art Festival earlier this year.

I wouldn't like to jump into conclusion but doesn't this over representation mean something? Isn't it new nihonga?
