Dai Asano (b. 1996, Mie, Japan) is a Japanese artist. His performance practice delves into the experience of time: 間—Ma, in-between, which he perceives not as a moment but as a motion. Rooted in Kitaro Nishida's "pure experience", Asano's theoretical approach explores the state before the separation into self and object. Asano received an MFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design and a B.A. in Business Ethics from Keio University in Tokyo, Japan.------------------
