Silence aloud

The concept is to substantialize poetic Chinese painting with audios, and to recall the calmness from the pre-industrial age.

.I built a place where visitors can relax and escape from the reality for a while, and also I want to enrich the already-exist art forms by giving them sounds. .This scene consists of mountains, valleys, houses, and rivers, representing ancient Chinese philosophy of “归隐”[hermitage]. Our ancestors suffered from the din and banality of officialdom, just like nowadays we are enduring urban noises. And we all want to escape to a far-away place, where there is no internet and no construction going on. This webpage enables visitors to immerse into this metaphoric space, being both a “visitor” and a “detective” to explore what might be going on in this painting.
