Built by Jiro himself, Planet Jiro immerses the visitor into a new and unexpected exploratory method of using the web. Frustrated by constantly encountering insurmountable and all too familiar formats to view artwork online, Osuga saw a potential in the World Wide Web as a medium to innovate a purely visual and interactive way of navigation.
