A Big Metaphor
The anchored boat floats on the lake, attached to the octagonal tower by a thick rope, which runs around a pillar and connected to a coil of iron sheet tied in the center of the floor. water moves the boat around the anchor point, and the sheet iron makes a sound as the rope tightness changes, so the sheet iron becomes the sensor of the water movement. Let alone her visible movement, even invisible undercurrent will be detected in time and turned into a sound of "clang, clang" to inform the people around.
lt was very crazy a few days ago. I made a big installation, a performance, two workshops and a lecture in Wuhan for 3 days.
It must be reported for launching this project in Tang Xun Lake. You cannot launch all by yourself, but with fishery staff. You have to pay them for launching and paddling the boat into the lake for you. The one-month extension cost 60,000 yuan. Finally, we shortened the time to 1 week, 2,000 yuan.
In the name of ecological protection, they took the money from the state to enclose natural resources, rent public resources, and rent them to large companies for activities. No one else is allowed to enter the lake unless they have permission. re is not a single swimmer in this lake that is the largest one inside the city in Asia, only one or two of their boats have sailed by chance.
The rope crossed a road by the lake. For safety reasons, the rope could only hang down in a limited way, so the boat anchored in the lake could only generate limited vibration. After passing through the 200-meter rope, the force of arrival was already very limited. refore, amplifiers were needed to amplify this almost imperceptible movement. What was more difficult was that the environment imposed a huge noise and because the wind was blowing the iron sheet.
This is just like the difficulty that scientists encountered in the early detection of cosmic microwave background radiation, extracting the tiny fluctuation from the huge noise, which explains the origin of the universe. This lake is a sign of China's ecological transformation or industrial upgrading. Generally speaking, it is a sign of mature or advanced urban civilization. However, the operation of this wave of launching costs can let us see the contradiction of thinking squeezing and presenting in different stages of development.
So the whole arrangement process of the work became a sensor.
