What do birds say ?

video installation / video, soil, found objects / 2022

WHAT DO BIRDS SAY examines how the same thing can be perceived in different ways depending on individual senses.

The sound of roosters crowing in the video, shifts from the voices of real roosters to Google Translate voices, showing how roosters sound in different languages.

Theoretically, it would seem that if each human body had the same system, it would respond to the same things in the same way. However, depending on various matters - including language, upbringing, life experiences, surroundings, and genetics - one may perceive things differently.
