2017 Jan – Feb
I reconsider the possibility of handling sound by myself and began to experiment with sound.
The first thing came into mind was to record sound of the underwater. I used a hydrophone and experimented with water at different sites, including the pier, the tap, the sink…. Then extended to record sounds of distress from the domestic environment – boiling kettle, washing machine, vacuuming, washing dishes; finally the city – children yelling in the restaurant, busy traffic lights, in the noisy MTR train….
A few sound collages are created, three of them are mixed into the new edits of the waves videos. Although the images are quite similar to the previous ones, these videos with sound possess additional dimensions and suggest spaces beyond the visuals.
