Main venue

Fidgety is a kind of nervous and jumpy feeling. It makes you feel frustrated and anxious. Usually, people consider it as something bad. However, it can be inspiration for musical composition and art creation. This sound installation is how I transform that emotional impact into audio-visual composition. The Chinese characters「忐忑」 are kind of hieroglyph. They composed by words – “up”「上」and “down” 「下」 over the word “heart” 「心」to describe such a feeling of fidgety. The design of this installation was also inspired by the construction of these Chinese characters. Built with 40 channels speaker-system, the arrangement of the speakers looked like a path of veins.
