DESCRIPTION (ENG)

The work is based on researching with Hong Kong Sai Yeung Choi Street South. This is intermingling area that is more complicated than in our imaginations. The activities of human will be different when they located in different forms of architecture. However, people usually think that the term ‘space’ is just as the place they can see. It becomes a contradiction between the actual activities and the imagination. Our project is to investigate on this question. This work tried to insert some element besides our imagination and change some fixed concept. We hope to show the multiplicity and complication of the street. As well think about what can be done in the public space nowadays. The work tried to break down the convention of cognition of visual leading, so the work used sound installation. We recorded eight unfamiliar sound samples from the street, and placed into eight wood-made cubes. Those cubes located into different position in height to match the place we record the sound. And the eight sound clips are a truck parking, digital games promotion, waterfall inside shopping centre, open the door, ice-cream van, beggar activities, non-stop traffic light alarm and performance shows.
