Art inspired by nature
Intensional Particle - short
Recommended to play the video in HD. 2015 Choreography & Dance: Hiroaki Umeda Image Direction: S20 Visual Research: Ludovic Burczykowski Image Programming: Shoya Dozono Video Editing: Guillaume Gravier Sound & Lighting Design: S20 Production: S20 Coproduction: Le Manège – Scène Nationale, le manège.mons, la Gare Numérique – Jeumont, la Maison des Arts de Créteil, Stereolux – Nantes, Mapping Festival – Genéve -- A horizontal line projected on the screen tremors. Suddenly, for an instance, the line drastically multiplies as if to discharge its immanent energy. Similarly, when Umeda on stage trembles, covert energy withheld in his body is transmitted from the pelvis to the spine, to the arms, and lastly to the digital screen situated at the rear, in which the energy is visualized by curved lines reminiscent of a solar corona. When waterfalls and rivers are seen from afar, they seem to maintain static forms; yet, when one zooms into the same objects in a microscopic level, it is noticeable that they are consisted of ceaseless motions such as swells, waves, vortex and crosscurrents. Based on this creative concept, in Intensional Particle, Umeda reinterprets the particles in space as not static molecules but rather as 'active particles (or, mass points)'; and, visualizes, in space, the 'intensional force' that particles conceal. On stage, the corporeal, the photic and the sonar forces converge in exponential speed, and, at one point, it reaches the critical point of energy. Yet, the extremity is not sustained for long as it once again reverts back to a temporal equanimity by going through phase transitions. The transient shapes of digital particles which conjure images of dissolution of solids, sublimation of liquids, and algorithms of heat transference, synchronizes and synthesizes with Umeda's movements – yielding an entire universe that dances like a living organism. The audience will be experiencing a digital reality saturated with 'unstable stability': the raging streamlines vanishes after a minute, and the luminous waterfall vaporizes after a second. Therefore, despite the existence of an explosive canvas soaked with digital curvatures right before our eyes, it simultaneously gives us a fragile impression. When an evanescent expression per se of the body is embedded within the architecture of lights, which moves incessantly to maintain a split-second stability, sooner or later, the audience realizes that everything on stage will vanish in the next moment. As if to embody the ephemeral aesthetics underpinning the piece, here, on stage, the invisible forces come to the fore and the visual universe sink out of sight. Yet, the residue of heat still simmering after the experience of an informational overload will linger long in the audiences' bodies. --

Ce tapis se compose de différents tableaux virtuels multicolores inspirés de formes emblématiques associées au paysage urbain très constructiviste de Milton Keynes. L'oeuvre est accompagnée d'un dispositif sonore créé spécialement pour l’installation par le compositeur Ray Lee. Les visiteurs sont invités à prendre dans leurs mains des petites sphères en aluminium qui génèrent de la musique. Grâce à des capteurs de présence, cette création est interactive. Cet univers fluide réagit visuellement selon les déplacements des visiteurs. Leurs mouvements modifient la trajectoire des éléments sous leurs pieds, dessinant de nouvelles compositions toujours plus surprenantes. Tel un kaléidoscope géant, ce monde de couleurs et de formes en mouvement transporte les visiteurs dans un voyage imaginaire et poétique de jeu et d'illusions optiques. Magic Carpets 2016 is a giant luminous carpet projected on the floor inside of the MK Center. This carpet is made of different virtual and multicolore graphic scenes inspired by emblematic forms associated to urban landscapes in Milton Keynes which are very constructivist. The artwork beneficiates of a musical display specially created for the installation and composed by Ray Lee. The visitors will be able to carry small aluminium spheres generating the music. By using presence sensors the installation is interactive. In a visual way this fluent universe is impacted by the visitors' movements. The moves modify the elements' trajectory under the feet drawing a new composition which remains stunning. Like a giant kaleidoscope the spectator is immersed in a world of colors, moving forms and travels into an imaginary and poetic game of optical illusions.
My Whale (inner revision)
“My Whale" (inner revision) interactive hexagonal installation. D MUSEUM, Seoul, 2016 more - https://www.behance.net/gallery/36320949/My-Whale-(inner-revision) Reimagined and bigger scale version of projection-based hexagonal installation “MyWhale” which was originally produced as a site-specific interactive installation by Tundra for “Brusov”, a renovated ship, laid up on Moscow river and turned into an art-cluster. Watch the original version here: https://vimeo.com/108384374 The inner revision of "MyWhale" consists of nearly 600 laser-cutted projection mapped hexagons. The installation was specially made for “9 Lights in 9 Rooms” exhibition at D MUSEUM (Seoul, Korea). It was visited by more than 200 000 visitors during the period of exhibition 05.12.2016 - 08.05.2016. ----------------------------------- Booking: firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.instagram.com/wearetundra/ https://www.facebook.com/wearetundra http://wearetundra.org/
PLEASE SELECT 1080p HD Video quality for Viewing /// Compression is killing the mesh. The waves incessantly and repeatedly dip and crest, crashing, forming and breaking again. The waves weave into a constantly morphing flow, where different identities knit and merge into each other, losing themselves in pulsing lines and knots. With their hypnotically continuous cycle, the waves question our identity, in permanent state of flux. The piece is inspired by and quotes lines from Virginia Woolf's “The Waves” (1931). It has been created using DepthKit and generative textures to each individual frame.
