Cross is a sound installation. I try to create a generative system of sound, and use sculptures to imply the relationship of transmission. I placed four sets of microphones and speakers in the space, microphone A receives the sound played by speaker A and transmits the sound to speaker B, microphone B receives the sound from speaker B and then transmits it to speaker C, and so on. Finally, the sound that is received by microphone D will be sent back to Speaker A, thereby generating a continuously deformed feedback sound.
This work is inspired by the observation of gossip between people. Speakers and microphones acting like mouths and ears, and the sound corresponds to the deformations of messages transmitted by word of mouth. When people enter the space, they hear barely nothing at the beginning, because there is no sound source. After a few seconds, the sound will appear through the complex feedback system. Except the system, people may realise that their action and position could also affect the sound.
