To embody musicality in the performative installation is the main idea of this project. Cymatics is not a new topic; however, it transforms the subtle sound quality into physical movements, to evoke another sensation. I have been researching the interaction between sound and objects these years, to express music via installation. Besides, water has a special quality, also can change its patterns with sound movements.
Des Script (2014)
During the process of composition, I used to make blueprints of the design of structures, pitches, articulation, and register prior to making an actual composition. The blueprints also include texts and images of the sections’ emotion evolvements. There are also considerable amounts of text accompanying the manuscripts. However, the final editions of the scores are usually typed digitally before handed out to the musicians. The musicians then perform the music for the audiences. For the audiences in the concerts, they experienced the rendition of the works in a limited amount of time. I exhibit the manuscripts, and rises the possibility of showing the audiences the entire processes in a completely different space.
There are music manuscripts with sound Interactive devices, plans and photos. Visitor can listen to the finished music corresponding to the manuscripts in which you are interested on the wall by touching the button on the Ipad.

Echo II- Light
The second installation is related to the reflection of light. There is water-proof speaker which is attached under a plastic mirror, and a strong profile light project on this installation, then the reflection is on the white screen. All the effects come out from the speaker will affect the reflection.
