“ Vibration Lake “

January 2008 | Chiang-Mai, Thailand | 8 speakers, amplifier, mixing console, laptop computer. | SUMO STUDIO®

Eight speakers float in the center of the lake. Waves are drawn on the surface of the water by the different sound frequencies. It a metaphor for the tension between human beings and the surrounding natural environment, is the border? How does one define a territory? The sounds under water and the recordings of barking sounds from the city of Chiang Mai (near the red water lake), are struggling to compete, deaf with the water.
