Seiji Ikeda, a Japanese-American, taught himself HTML and made his first hand-coded web page in 1995. Hooked ever since, he continues to research new technologies and the digital age as related to the web, digital ethnography, gaming and world cultures. His art work centers around the concept of the web as a mini-cosmos that is reflective of real world culture and inner-self. He works both in digital prints and the emerging field of web art. His clients include non-profit organizations, fashion designers, city newspapers, sports information media, and education departments. He received his Master's of Fine Arts degree from Kansas State University in Visual Communications. In addition, Ikeda is an advocate of the Japanese Performing Arts (taiko drums and yosakoi-style dance).
