Artist Statement

乡音 (Xiang Yin ), The Rural Sound

Xiang Yin is an installation project that expresses the artist’s memories of the soundscape from her rural hometown in China. The sounds from life in the rural area such as rooster crows in the morning, cries from children playing in the yard, etc. are sounds that make her feel at home and at ease.  She hopes to share the soothing qualities of her home town with her listener. Through the images and sounds, the listener may start to picture the simple and peaceful rural life, all of which now though distant, remains a wonderful memory for the artist.

Activities: Reading, studying, printing, resting, watching videos, working etc.

The ways people interact with ADM library are various compared to traditional concept of library being a place with book collections. In ADM library besides reading books, people use it more as a place to do homework. There are many seats and lazy bags for resting. The obtain of knowledge can be done both through physical and virtual databases.

Possible directions/interesting aspects:

  • New ways of displaying books, magazines and etc
  • Unconventional objects in a library (objects from a park, a coffee shop etc)
  • View of the outside through windows
  • A corner for sharing
