Sound and Voice



The Still Flow

Unlike how a river moves, a stone changes subtly in a way humans can't perceive. Yet, is the stone still? To me, life and change, these two words are synonyms. All lives are in motion. I regarded many lives as still, but they are moving at their speed, and I may be static in their eyes. One’s lifespan decides one’s perception of the world. We, humans, may see only a part of the world. Perhaps, a stone sees it differently, or more. Through this project, I re-look at lives that I “seemed” to know, sensing their movement and perceiving the world through their eyes.
