Hiroaki Umeda – Intensional Particle - Japan / France - 23 September - Hiroaki Umeda – Intensional Particle - Japan / France - 23 September
"Anyone should see it in real life, it's mind-fucking in the most intriguing way and messes up your sense. "
Hiroaki Umeda is a multidisciplinary artist who focuses on movement and is recognised as one of the leading figures of the Japanese avant-garde. In 2000 he started his own company ‘S20’ and has since developed his works with an intimate quality that requires physical attendance of an audience. His work is often minimal, but expansive. Using projections and motion sensors Umeda is able to become one with his creative environment, controlling light and sound with his movements. Returning to TodaysArt for a third time, Umeda now presents Intensional Particle, an experience of digital reality saturated with ‘unstable stability’. A breathtaking visualisation that embeds Umeda’s kinetic language within a luminous architecture of lights and curvatures, Intensional Particle explodes upon a canvas before abruptly vanishing. It’s an abundance of information that yields the universe as a living, dancing organism. Hiroaki Umeda’s performance is presented in collaboration with our We are Europe friends, Sónar.
This project is presented in the framework of We are Europe by Sónar Festival.
