To Future Listeners II 
Phonograph, wax cylinder
1 min 40 sec
Dimensions variable
For To Future Listeners II (2022), a phonograph produced in the 1900s is displayed in the gallery. As I share a wax cylinder recording of my own voice singing Ar-ra-rang 1 repeating the same way of existing ethnographic recording in modern times that had been reduced to noise, I try to prolong its validity in the present time frame. In the process, I seek to offset the sentiment of death that looms over the ethnographic recording.
