in July 2021, I was living in a mountain area near Steuben, WI, USA for a while. the first morning of my stay, I was awaken by a bird choir consisting of at least 5 different sounds.
i have been using found bird chirping sound (mostly from the internet) in my insatllations for so many times,
but I never thought about when, where, how, why they were created and who made them.
i think the choir outside my window is a first lesson those birds tried to teach me.
lesson 01 (in Minecraft)
also in July 2021, I started a residency program at Ender Gallery in video game Minecraft.
as a gamer with almost zero experience in Minecraft beforehand, i was surprised that Minecraft does not have an ambient bird chirping sound.
since bird chriping sounds have become an important component of my practice, I decided to make the first iteration in this residency which aims to recreate my studio inside the site of Minecraft.
my process is as below:
copy01: a found digital model
copy02: a 3d printed model (PETG)
copy03: a 3d scanned model
copy04: another 3d printed model
