David Umemoto is a Canadian architect and sculptor, his work can be mainly described as studies about volume. At the juncture of sculpture and architecture, he realizes miniature pieces that evoke temporary monuments. All of his pieces are handmade, “in order to respect an economy of means…Umemoto’s art is rooted in Americanness: His varied creations take their impetus from a desire to start settlements and to colonize wild lands”. Umemoto explains his work as a highly codified and rigorous construction of an extensive modular system where each element can be added or subtracted to give place to a new unique work.
