Interactive sculpture sings fragments of two Taiwanese lullabies that my grandmother used to sing to me. It is an intimate piece that when the viewer approaches the piece, it will start to sing quietly, the volume gets louder as the person reaching the head toward the opening of the shell. It is like a siren.  

This is a collaboration with the artist, Jonathan Grover, who is in charge of electronics, programming, and sound mixing.
