What would voices look like ?

When the “body” is developed into an auditory organ perceiving numerous voices and sounds , the “visualization of hearing” is made possible
through the synesthesia , transformation , and representation of verbal accounts , interviews , image freezing and abstract/concrete sketch lines.

By collecting related data and sound materials recounting stories of local people , things and happenings , Sound Geography records/databases the plenitude of culture in each local area , and studies the empirical connections between “hearing and sight.” At the same time , it aspires to leave illustrative samples gathered from di erent cities and areas.

The publication of Sound Geography series is meant to establish a “voice- drawing database”through gradual accumulations. This creative project currently covers several cities:Yamaguchi (Japan), Kaohsiung、Hengchun and Beitou (Taiwan). The sample cities in progress--Tainan (Taiwan) , Tokyo (Japan) , Davao (Philippines) , Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia) and Sydney (Australia)—since 2015 are due to be finished by 2018. The project is expected to proceed continuously in the future.
