Ittah Yoda is a duo composed of Virgile Ittah and Kai Yoda, based between Paris, Berlin and Tokyo. Their partnership grew out of mutually-assisting collaborations during their studies at the Royal College of Art. They subsume their diverse cultural experiences into a combination of virtual world-building and extensive material research to produce multi-sensorial installations. Ittah Yoda’s work is self-generating, quoting itself while continuously growing new branches with each successive collaboration, be it with artificial intelligence, fabricator, technician, writer, glitch, environmental conditions or non-human life. Ittah Yoda seeks to engender aesthetic and therapeutic experiences that reframe ways of communicating between human and non-human beings, favoring symbiotic over hierarchical models.
