Description:

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.  

       互動式雕塑。對觀者提供一個私密的觀看經驗,當觀看者接近該作品時,它會開始安靜地唱歌,唱著藝術家祖母過去曾唱給她聽的兩首台灣搖籃曲片段,演唱者為藝術家本人。隨著人們受到聲音吸引而朝著貝殼的開口靠近,音量會逐漸變大,如同海妖的歌聲般。

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