Shining the web – Hiroaki Umeda online performance

When waterfalls are seen from afar, they seem to maintain static forms; yet, when one zooms into the same objects at a microscopic level, it is noticeable that they have consisted of ceaseless motions such as swells, waves, vortex and crosscurrents. In everyday life, humans assemble a plethora of informative signals into manageable units and recognize them, for instance, as an individual, an object, or certain scenery.
