Serenade of the Woods, 2018-19,  A Collaboration with sound artist James Wilkie


“Serenade of the Woods" is a project using the objectivity of algorithms to examine and challenge the binary opposition between technology and nature. in a sense of uniformity (QI WU theory,  Chuangtsu).  Through the analysis of data, the rhythm of plants in breeze is read then transformed into musical scores. Applied with Olivier Messiaen Scale inspired by oriental music and birds song, the algorithm processes movements of plants swaying in the breeze recorded from everyday life. Each plant is given a musical instrument that corresponds to its synesthetic form. Eventually, musical scripts written by nature are played by human as live performance and audiovisual installation.
