The land that came after the sea


About works

Using sound elements in public spaces has not been commonly regarded as an option by urban designers, architects, or in local renewal programs since most of the time, people may ignore the potential of sounds; instead, they tend to pay more attention and concern on architecture itself or some other visual attractions such as gardens or landscaping. However, a landscape involves more than what we see. It also includes a space, plans of designers, and dialogues between visitors and local communities. Apart from visual sense, it requires other senses to really perceive the landscape. Many scholars and artists also highlight through different expressions how the sense of hearing acts so significantly to influence people’s feeling about a place. When trying to integrate our sound project into the landscape, we've focused on two features: being ordinary but extraordinary at the same time. The design shall blend in the environment without overwhelming the experiences of the tourists or disturbing local residents and animals in the surroundings. The project shall be a part of the perceivable landscape while its presence shall only be featured in certain attractions or set scenes.
