Documentary I-TAP-TAP

"Sound" is an integral part of fodder factory. The sound of machines tells if they are functioning normally, signals a "work mode" and dictates the progress of work. While at work, workers need to listen to the sounds of all types of machines attentively, determine progress and decide what button to press. Raw material goes in from the right and comes out from the left. One batch after another, the material is taken to the barrels at the other side of the factory. Consisting of repeated steps and separated by paralleled rows of procedures, the production process works much in the same way as a typewriter. The da da sound resembles the sound of confirmation inside a plant - a sound that brings hope and stability to everyday living for me and my family.

Using sounds of the production process - sounds normally regarded as "noises" - as the design elements, and with the inclusion of imagery as a supporting role, this sound installation records the piling-up, tumbling, breaching and spilling-out of material - common scenes on a conveyor belt - to present the artist's impression and hope for balanced supply and demand of the world's natural resources.

Documentary II-DA-DA

This is a sound installation using sounds that are normally seen as "noises", sounds that are heard at the last phase of a batching plant - cleaning up of the raw material container, batching of livestock feed and piling up of the feed on trucks.

The work re-presents the image of "piling up" - the main mode of operation in a batching plant - through sounds and images. Every step and procedure is completed by "piling up" in order to function normally, follow the correct formula and produce the right product. It also portrays finished feeds piled up high and solidly, and the measures to be taken for proper storage. By piling up sounds and images, the work also implies a hope for an intact economic pyramid for the world.
