Myst
Sound installation
2023
In the depictions of mysterious creatures in many film and television works, the most fascinating thing is often not their physical form, but the insinuations before they appear, the phenomena they cause, the vibrations of the body, the smell, the sound... . The installation work "Myst" creates the illusion of an incorporeal creature, using sound to keep the state in the imagination before the monster manifests. At the same time, it explores the control of water mist and its possibility as a sound medium
The work uses small water drop floating in the air to interfere with laser light, causing the current that flow through the photoresistor be unstable. By amplifying this signal, some low-frequency noise are generated, and be send to resonance speakers mounted on a transparent corrugated board. It sounded like a low hum from a fog monster behind the wall, vibrating the entire space.

許多影視作品對神祕生物的描繪中,最引人遐想的往往不是牠們的具象形體,而是現身前的旁敲側擊,是牠們引發的現象、身體的震動、氣味、聲音......作品Myst試圖創造無形體生物的幻象,利用聲音,將狀態停留在怪物具現前的想像,同時探索水霧作為聲響介質的可能性。作品透過飄散在空氣中的小水珠對雷射光進行干擾,使通過光敏電阻的電有不穩定的電流,透過擴大此電訊號來產生低頻震動的噪音,並由安裝於透明浪板上的震動喇叭發出,像是牆後的迷霧怪物發出的低鳴震動著整個空間。
