Homesick is an audiovisual installation. The main material of the project is water in Anseong (KR) and Weimar (DE), two cities where I currently live. The movement of the microbes in water is converted into sound data and generate sound according to an experimental music notation in real time. This work is a metaphor for my physical and mental state after living abroad for a long time away from hometown, especially during the pandemic, when I was unable to visit home for two and a half years.
