Exhibition at Treasure Hill Artist Village

Taipei, Taiwan

24.02.23 - 13.02.23

Over the course of three weeks, Sayang used modular synthesis and field recordings from three of Taipei's water sources, to develop an interactive, evolving exhibition.

Split into three chapters, the exhibition reflected Sayang's personal experiences and connection to water during their time in Taipei, as well as the people who responded through rest, mark making and drawing. Each chapter took the form of live sound installations, a gentle environment and visitor response with charcoal and paper.

This was a dedicated space to explore and develop non-verbal communication, human and environmental relationships and alternative interpretations of a singular event.
