Whatever You Say

Jan | 2012 | Collaborated with Hye-yeon Nam

Inspired by ultrasonic weapons used by military and police forces, Whatever You Say is an installation that produces low frequency sound. The sound is generated for two minutes every ten minutes when an audience is detected. It is felt as vibrations and intensifies as a person stands closer to the piece. If language is increasingly the soft power employed by pop stars and politicians then Whatever You Say is a visceral reminder of the raw physicality of sound itself.

The power is in the act of speaking, producing sound in itself.
