LLAP
YAO Chung-Han

Yao is fascinated by fluorescent light's vital and vibrant sound and light expression, and expands its sound into an extensive audio receptive system. LLAP stands for "Laster - Lamp - Audio Performance," which is the continuation of his previous work LLSP (Laster - Lamp - Sound - Performance). Using glistening circular fluorescent lights and laser beams that run vertically and horizontally, the artist creates a simple visual plane, orchestrating a minimalistic symphony of fluorescent light and laser. The work explores the boundary between precision and imprecision as well as the dialogue between digital and analogous signals and their conversion. At the same time, Yao adds the element of electronic music into this work, hoping to expand the discussion about the nature of our auditory perception free from the limiting categorization of noise, sound and music.

He employs the corresponding and contrasting relations of light and sound to trigger viewers' imagination of physical senses.
