Artist Yuichiro Katsumoto uses common objects to bring fun and excitement to the everyday

Yuichiro Katsumoto's 'Amagatana', currently on show in FACT's Gallery 1, injects some entertaining whimsy into a rainy day. Katsumoto uses an accelerometer to judge the force with which an umbrella is wielded and provides the appropriate clashing of metal for the pseudo-swordfighter... The above video provides a great demonstration of Amagatana in action - and also provides the combinations required to unlock its special moves!
His 'Fula' work isn't on display at FACT but, as you'll see, when used in collaboration with Amagatana provides the perfect effect for any aspiring superhero... :-D
