Ito Gabin, who started out in editing, applies a similar approach to his wide-ranging activities, which span paper media, games, video, web design, and contemporary art. In 1992, he produced Self-Portrait 1972-82 (a large-scale representation of himself created with instant noodles, consumed in enormous quantities when he was a growing teenager) for the legendary exhibition Anomaly, organized by art critic Noi Sawaragi. The following year, he participated in the establishment of BOCTOK Inc. Even after earning high praise in Japan and overseas for his ingenious writing for the PaRappa the Rappermusic games, Ito has continued to deliver startlingly innovative projects: modernfart, a website collecting articles that "users can read to kill time"; Tee Party, a "wearable JPEG shop" which sells artists designed t-shirts online and on demand; and Manba Tsūshin, a platform for discussing manga.
