Ringo by Tetsuya Umeda at Liveworks Festival
245 Wilson Street, Eveleigh, NSW, 2015, Australia
25th October 2017 to 28th October 2017
Osaka-based artist Tetsuya Umeda creates dynamic environments with architectural structures, sound and light. His mesmerising and surprising performances produce intricate soundscapes and musical compositions through live experiments with everyday tools and scraps, re-purposed machines and electronics. Umeda’s site-specific installation for Liveworks employs found domestic objects, transformed from their daily familiarity into a transcendent spectacle of the unexpected. Umeda’s work demonstrates elaborate systems of cause-and-effect, with elements powered by gravity, wind, centrifugal force or falling objects, capturing the moments where ordinary and extraordinary collide.
