    PennDesign _ Spring 2014 _ Independent Study with Mohamad Al Khayer

    The work set out to investigate five main goals: Scalability of system, asymmetric and irregular folding patterns, material construction and fabrication, potential to create, append, and manipulate space through folding, all while maintaining a single degree of freedom.

    Appended Space explores the scaling and fabricating of an architectural scale proposal, utilizing the principles explored in our earlier work.

    Each panel is constructed of two sides of 1" extruded polystyrene foam, hot-wire cut to create butt and miter edges. The panels are resin coated and sandwiched on either side of a fiberglass mesh membrane acting as a hinge. On each 8'x8' wall, a single 100lb linear actuator controls the folding and unfolding of the system.

  4. "Nemore" is a garden, consiting of 36 bendable graphite poles. "Nemore" senses the visitor. Each pole has a behavior and reacts to it's neighbours only: and to the visitor, of course - the visitor acts an "alien neighbour". We are interested in the question: Does a system arise from the poles behaviour, that we (the observers and the visitor) perceive as angst, curiosity, nervousness, etc.? Each pole has a distinct sound, that builds up a chord, fluctuating in resonance with the movement of the poles.

    The cfriticality of perception highlighted in a spectacle of light, and the human body.

    Holistic Strata


    YCAMの滞在制作を経て発表される新作「Holistic Strata」は、ダンサーの身体とその運動によって生成される「身体情報」をキーワ­ードに、人間の知覚を揺さぶる全く新しいパフォーマンスを提案します。時に、ダンスを­空間に埋め込み、また、観客の眼前へと浮かび上がらせる......。そんなイメージ­を自在に生み出す本作には、これまでのダンス表現にはなかった空間表現としての〈ダン­ス〉が見えてきます。情報技術を使いこなし、パソコンと身一つで世界へ飛び出した振付­家は、YCAMを舞台にどのような飛躍をみせるのか。研ぎすまされたイメージが織りな­す圧倒的な空間で、私たちは、知覚の臨界を体験します。
    Hiroaki Umeda, a choreographer who has been attracting attention in Japan and abroad with his "visual performances" blending imagery, sound and dance, presents his brand new dance piece at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM]. Holistic Strata is a YCAM original production developed with the Center's expert staff during the artist's stay in Yamaguchi, with the aim to break new ground in the filed of body expression integrating media technology.

    Based on his own set designs mixing imagery and sound, Hiroaki Umeda equivalently combines in his pieces elements of light, sound, and the human body. For his audiences, these performances are opportunities to experience their own bodies' primary reactions triggered by intensely stimulating light and sound. Visitors to the performance at YCAM are likely to witness another leap forward by the choreographer who has been harnessing information technology to conquer the world with nothing but his body and a computer. Look forward to a novel type of performance that will rock your body senses and challenge your perception.
