Installations of the body and light The art of Hiroaki Umeda
Hiroaki Umeda is a visual artist and performer who has ventured onto the international scene with works created in a compact style that employs his own body and self-created video images, music and lighting tracks recorded on a single notebook computer. Since he first drew attention at the 2002 Yokohama Dance Collection R, Umeda has gone on to win praise of dance professionals around the world for the way he wraps his improvisational body movement in intricately woven spaces defined by light (video) and music with the beauty of an art installation. We talked with Umeda about his world of creativity as an artist of the current generation of young venture-business entrepreneurs who makes the computer his working partner.
