"If you study a great work of art, you'll probably find the artist was a kind of genius. And geniuses are different to you and me. So let's have no talk of temperamental, self-absorbed and petulant babies. Being a good artist is the toughest job you could pick, and you have to be a little nuts to take it on. I love them all."--Charles Saatchi

Loving you,Sir Saatchi!

T.踢毽子-Play with Jianzi


Jianzi is a traditional Chinese game
A jianzi is made up by some feather or plastic-paper and a coin/stone/anything have weight and round
I want to hang many Jianzi from the ceiling,and people could play with them when they enter the hall
It's hard to find feather in Holland so far,so I want to use plastic-paper and stone to make up Jianzi

"I have nothing to say and I'm saying it"



I really love my name,that's why I do not have a english name.
I love my name's meaning and pronunciation.
I really enjoy the moments people try so hard to remember and to pronounce my name.
I do a lots of works inspired by my name.
I want to design my business card,and I thought of capturing every frame when I spoke my name. Suddenly,this idea triggered my anther idea,which is to print out every frame then paste onto the wall.
When people thinking about to display a work of sound art,they try so hard to underline,indicate there must be sound.So they place media which contain sound martial(like stereos,microphones,TV-sets,radios)
For me,this is too narrative.
Therefor, I want to paste those frames onto the wall,which is my name's pronunciation.When people coming to the hall,they may not understand immediately.The sound actually extract from the situation.
There's no sound in the hall but I'm saying the sound and I'm showing them in silence way.

共勉

"有很多事情,尤其是那些人情世故,都不应该顾及考虑过多,因为它会随着时间的流逝渐渐消亡,在前行时致使迷失心志与忽略重要事。真正在乎自然事物,才应该,才有意义。如星空、尘埃、空气、水、土壤、风、流云、幻象甚至梦,比那些所谓物质比色彩、艺术本身还奇妙,它们使我在某些时刻头脑清醒、目光透彻,更加能够看到事情本质所在。"

Most things,specially for worldly wisdom,which will gone with the time and will distract mind and soul,could not be taken too much consideration.

It's important and meaningful to take care about the real nature.Such as star sky,tiny dust,air,water,soil,wind,could,imagination and dream,which are more beautiful,colorful and magical than objects,color itself,art..They can clear our mind,making us to look through the essence of this world.

巴迪厄





艺术应该创造无限;艺术家不重要,使作品成为现实一部分,促成我们的新世界的到来,才是目标;在政治无路可走时,艺术是去替我们创造出往下走的可能性的;艺术应去凝聚、表现、生产一种全球新感性,来真正引导群众重新建立与这个世界的新的感性联系,走进这种全球普遍性;艺术的主题不是作品的主题,艺术品的主体不是艺术家,后者是艺术品中被牺牲的部分;艺术应该同时成为暗夜里的偷袭、宁静的星星和一鸣惊人的展示;艺术应该去创造出一种新的自由,比民主定义下的自由更新的自由,它是新的决裂,新的开始,新的可能性,新的世界,新的光和新的星系。


去创造新的可能性,不是去实现已经存在、被我们望见的那种可能性,而是去创造出那一可能性先。艺术要去创造新的生命的可能性、新的世界的可能性。

Project Proposal for Master Program #1

I propose to use sound to define the space.When people come to the museum/gallery/live show,they always want to be surprised or shocked or wait to see/hear something.The average time of staring at an artwork will no more than 10 seconds.The experience vary from people to people with different background,gender,religion,educational levels etc.


I want to seek for a common experience that no matter who you are you can feel/experience it in your body.

When we in the swimming pool,at first,we feel nothing;when we go deeper,we feel the pressure,the fear,different sound from the surface.I want to re-create this experience using different sound frequencies in one(pure color)room/swimming pool(if it possible).


When people come into the room,they probably see/hear nothing.As they go deeper,they can feel/experience the pressure from various specific frequencies of sound.They may be high or feel fear or get the familiar experience when they enter the swimming pool.


The stereos will be hidden in the room,so the audience can see nothing,and merely hear the sound.They will be totally immerse in the room of sound,frequencies,to feel the beauty of vibration of air.


References from "Sound Art"


Tony Smith:

There is no way to frame it,you just have to experience it.

Nature has its own language,which affects us with its inexorable power.This language cannot be imitated.


Robert Smithson:

Dealing with matter in terms of a back to nature movement.For me the world is a museum.Photography makes nature obsolete.My thinking in terms of the site and the nonsite makes me feel there's no need to refer to nature anymore.I'm totally concerned with making art and this is mainly an act of viewing,a mental activity that zeros in on discrete sites.


John Cage:

Silence is all of the sound we don't intend.

Sound art comes from the appreciation of the total environment of sounds,both wanted and unwanted.


Brain Eno:

Make a piece which completely sinks into that environment somewhere.


Erik Satie:

A music which is like furniture,which will be part of the noises of the environment,that will take them into consideration.


Sound art-----------time duration/repetition

Scale------size----------musical parameter


Sound is an external phenomenon as well as a universal and elemental force,like earth,light,water or air.

Sound is experience,so there's no point in trying to make it into an object as a collector's piece.So I'm trying to create situations where people come to it as experience and value that.


Definition of Sound(prototype)

Vibration of air

Sound is an experience

Sound and inter-relationship of human body

Human body has the frequencies(from different organs)

Why people get excited to certain genera of music?

The art-work with/without description

庄生晓梦迷蝴蝶

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Zhuangzi

人生如梦 life is just like a dream
一个循环往复的迷梦 a nonstop repeatedly dream

Using this inspiration,I want to use sound as a metaphor to create an aura which would confuse people who are surrounded by this aura.In this aura,people may feel hard to tell which is real or not.

I've heard that if your dream is colorful,then it indicate that you are the one who live in your dreams.My mother and i always have the colorful dreams,and I always dream of the beautiful sound from heaven.

I also have the Alice in Wonderland Syndrome.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_in_Wonderland_syndrome
But when I grew up,this syndrome disappeared.When I was a child,sleeping alone in my bedroom,I closed my eyes,suddenly I felt pulled into a 3-d blackhole.I was too scared then I forced myself to open my eyes,then everything in my world randomly boomed or shrink.This would last for several minutes.At that time,I told my parents about it but they did not believe me(unitl now,many people don't believe me)So I just kept my secret.
One day,I surfed on the internet then I check one article about many wired syndromes,suddenly I realized that I had the Alice in Wonderland syndrome.Such a beautiful syndrome.I feel so lucky and unique for both syndrome and experiences I had.
This also will be my inspiration in the future creation!

Christo and Jeanne Claude

克里斯多说:“我们的作品都有关自由,自由的敌人是拥有,因此消失要比存在更永久。”
Both of them were born in June 13,1935. Nice gemini artist couple,that's why I'm expecting M.

Flower,花,hana

Flower period. Circle. Nothing. O. 0.

What are you doing here

Place a thousand celery on one table in a large room.
People enter,then eat them.

Duchamp is not an Art form..

Duchamp devoted his whole life into breaking the rules and regulations to create the infinite possibilities for the world.
He did not create a NEW art form because his life is art.
Everyone's life could be ART.Everyone's work coule be ART.
It's too cruel to be proud of creating a "art-work"and to be an "artist".Also,it's too cruel to discriminate artist/art work from "normal people" and "normal work".
There's no boundary between different genres of art.Because everything in this universe is connected.Everyone,every element is the extension of energy.
Art could be exist even no body knows/cares/sees/documents/record.
Art is an inner power and energy that could be presented/explored/showed/expressed by artists.
Art is the kingdom of freedom,love,happiness...any energy that support human-being to be one element of the whole universe.
Any notion of art form or classification is too catholic.
Duchamp not only provided the possibility of what art could be,also of what life could be in the whole.
That's why he has been mentioned so many times,over and over again.
Because there are so few people in this world can actually come over to break the rules to open the new world to the people.
Because he was the one who didn't care anything and enjoyed the whole life.
That's it.

There's another sentence made me cry,wrote by Karlheinz Strockhausen
Imagine this,that I could create a work of art now and you all not only surprised,but you would fall down immediately,you would be dead and you would be reborn,because it is simply too insane.Some artists also try to cross the boundaries of what could ever be possible or imagined,TO WAKE US UP,TO OPEN ANOTHER WORLD FOR US!
