Nest

Tsung Yeh AIR Cultural Center, Tainan (Taiwan) 2018

2 channels: loudspeakers, concrete structure, 7 min loop. Collaboration with Georgi Tomov Georgiev.

Nest is a site-specific environmental artistic project. It is a permanent public soundinstallation located in a public Arts Park. The former factory complex, in which the piece is situated, is a monument to and an artifact of the industrialization process, which contributed to the current aural state of the Tainan area.The construction methods used to realize the structure mimic the architectural techniques unique to the area.The sculpture was inspired by the architectonic shape of a church’s dome, giving it unique acoustic properties.

A deep frequent drone creates a constant hum, which originates from recorded and editet sounds of a huge traditional taiwanese temple drum. In cities, a huge amount of high frequencies produced by electronic devices, overlays the background hum of Earth, the deep frequencies of nature. Researches lead to the result that deep frequencies support plants growth, attract birds and are able to re-establich the human connection to nature. This sculpture will be covered by plants, whose growing process is enhaced by the sound frequencies used and also the tactile vibrations on the surface of the sculpture, on which the plants grow. With our project we aim to give a possibility to restore the connection to our natural environment on a visual, sonic and environmental level.
