For the Triennial in 2019, curator Sun A Moon of APAP 6 (“Anyang Public Art Project 6”) invited an (inter)national group of 47 artists on the theme of “Symbiotic City”. Studio Daan Roosegaarde (NL) opened the exhibition with the “Smog Free Project” in the centre of Anyang. I was asked to make a site-specific sound walk.
“Vertical awareness” started from the Anyang Art Center and ended in the Anyang Art Park at the top of “the Observatory”, designed by MVRDV during the first Triennial in 2005.
The headphone-walk creates a sound horizon of Anyang, a city in transition, in its attempt to form a symbiosis between city noise and the surrounding nature.
