Meng Tang's Embodied Sound

In China, there is no property law. When the city is developing in a high speed, many old houses be destroyed without fair agreements. Many people decide to stay in their old houses no matter what. I always see some people live in some small houses without basic living standard. How could those small voice be heard by the main stream society? This phnomena inspired me to make this piece.

I made a small house first. The small house made from wood and newspaper. Then i recorded someone's snore and saved the sound file into a tinny sound player. I put the tinny sound player into a toy bear's body . Then i put the toy bear into the small house i made before. I also used a small sound speaker that connect to a piazo which i hided in the the door.
