CHANGYEN TZU

Imprint of City_Ogaki, Japan

Sound Installation |2016

The idea was inspired by stone craving which is one of way to keep memory permanently for ancients. Indeed, some areas and viewpoints, people engraved the words on stone to tell the history. In these cases, the stone becomes an important symbol of conveying of the message. The visualisation is transformed to the sense of touch and auditory.
Yen Tzu Chang collects the sound systematically on the street, at same time, the spot where she records the sound will be the switch on and off can absolutely coordinates on stone. Paint on conductive ink on the stones. When the audiences touch the stone, they follow the texture of stone to find out the sound from city. In this sound installation, the stone hits both sides: the symbol of the documentary of the sound, and a brand new interface for audience to figure out, listen, and compose. During the concert, the visual will present the simple map which the site she touch on the stone.
