Title: Electromagnetic soundscape
Year: 2012

Dimension: Site‐Specific

Quiet noise is in an existent but opaque state,a form of exploration of the sporadic connections between the urban sounds and the space.The discoveries regarding the using of electricity precipitated the Second Industrial Revolution.Electricity ran through cities like blood in the veins in human bodies,converting dashing,invisible electromagnetic waves into sounds through coils and shaping electromagnetic soundscapes of the cities.Inthe past,people used the technology of electromagnetism to record sounds so that they could copy the original recording,split and reproduce previous time and space.This is how the audio-culture scholar,R.Murray Schafer,has defined the concept of "schizophonia".This unique work deconstructed the recorded electromagnetic soundscape,the recorded sounds and space,and built an interactive one through the employment of electromagnetic technology.

Title: Perceived Soundscape
Year: 2012

Dimension: Site‐Specific

People living in the city often take the same routes day after day.This work recorded the sounds in the MRT cars of the same line for 100days,Continuous,boisterous,blurry,repetitious,mechanical sounds.We seem to hear infinite sounds without really hearing anything.Audio sense differs from the visual that could be turned off when the eyes close.We might not be able to make sense of the existing sounds that we hear all the time,yet they are always affecting us nonetheless.These undetectable,ubiquitous electromagnetic waves in the city,or the sounds of the urban environment that we keep receiving without awareness,form the audio state of a certain urdan space.Noisy as it might be,it is also tranquil.People stand between the speakers and close the eyes to listen to the sound we usually ignore in the MRT transferring through the cities.
