This is a group of three participatory sound installations consists of simple sound “devices”. This Triptych is a study, a contemplation on how things turn out to be when humans are not in absolute control of the situation and the final outcome, how humans acknowledge and interact with the world and the law of nature, how humans can work and live in harmony with things around them.

the audience use a long flexible fishing rod with a little metal head to strike a triangle.

2. Woodblocks and springy hammers

with the special hammers made of long spring, sometimes when we do not expect the hammers to meet the woodblocks, they actually do, and vice versa.

The audience participate in the installation by making their own paper airplanes and use them to strike the wind chimes if they can manage to do so. This is also a study about when human is not in absolute control of the final outcome
