The Sound create a space

 

It is the space of the work. Which helps focus sound surrounding me, getting our of a lot of noise.

A line of pillars can become walls, trees and living space if they have a little sound.

The sound rages and throws the space, But it can’t be told to be empty. It emits come lights getting sound and the sound feels familiar but always new. Breathing and evolving space, it is the inner side by essence of sound and space.

 

“Sound Forest” is made by omni directional speaker system which make best sound in any space that have balance about high-pitched tone and low-one. We can make all speakers make sound at the same time, and make unintended harmony like a troll.

 

This piece makes fresh feeling sound and very familiar with designated musics and play system.

Light of Sound illuminates the Space of Darkness, where a single ray of light shall not pass. Within this space, we can only rely upon our senses to takes us to the uncertain journey through the darkness.

A glimpse of light that reacts to the sounds – sometimes chaotic and sometime fragmented - shall deliver the notion of comfort to some, and the notion of suspense to others.

This space, a visible-but-yet-not-visible space that can only be perceived through interaction of sound, is a manifesto towards the society that vision dictates our perception of the world.

Let yourself follow the sound to lead you, and plunge yourself into the realm of imagination.
