Sound Installation / Site Specific 6.4m*2.5m*5m 2020
The exhibition consists of four site-specific works and is based on the artist’s research on the commercial structure, residential land, and green spaces along the four-way roads of Kearny Street, Grant Ave, Stockton Street, and Powell Street in San Francisco’s financial districts and Chinatown. For reference, Hung analyzed ambient sensations such as the decibel of machine sounds, frequencies of multilingual speakers, tempos of traffic, and the direction of sunlight.
In a temporal response to developing cities, changing neighborhoods, and shifting demographics, Hung adapts the gallery’s four distinct but interrelated bays into separate experiences of timespace. “Acoustic Measurement” is a reinterpretation on urban sounds, as a central motor dictates and speed and quality of the sound it makes.
