Sound installation, 2008-2016
Materials: Wooden arm-chairs, a speaker, storage battery, audio play circuit board
I did a sound performance in 2008, where I had a conversation with myself nonstop for 8 hours. I could not go to the toilet or eat, until my voice went hoarse and I became exhausted. The content of that conversation covered every aspect of my memories and my circumstances at the time. After 8 years, I repeated this performance in 2016. Although I acted the same way, the content of the conversation has changed with new meanings, because time has passed and circumstances have become different. I sealed the two audio clips in the pillow parts of the two arm-chairs, so people can hear them when they sit on the chairs. The two wooden arm-chairs are made by my father and I, and they are installed with used wooden furniture that we collected from neighbor villages in our hometown. These arm-chairs became the carriers of my sound performance.
Desk, electric heating tube, water, relay, etc. Working frequency: heating for 20 minutes, stopping for 99 minutes, repeated cycles.
