Naoki Izumo

I am a Nisei, That means I am the first American born generation in my Japanese family, who grew up in the Chicagoland Suburbs. I studied in a commercial television program Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and my medium of choice to work in is video.I use video as a medium as a dialogue to explore the counter-culture with a minimal yet maximizing approach. My films ask questions about daily life, and draw influence from experimental cinema, popular culture and commercial advertising.
