The Cat-Mouse-Cheese-Column Orchestra
is a sound/sculpture installation consisting of five sculptural instruments, generating sounds and movements through the motion of chase-and-escape derived from the cat-and-mouse scenario from classic cartoon animations. Instead of achieving an end, this work presents such narrative as a perpetual loop, a constant power exchange, and a coexistence of conflicts and codependence.
