System of Meaning investigates how linguistic systems establish meaning and are used as a form of control. Original and pitch-shifted waveforms of vowels are played through opposite speakers. At the center between speakers, their wave interferences create binaural beats that obscure intelligible vowels. Audiences are instructed to separate into groups and enter accordingly. Movement paths appear on the screen as obscured instructions.
Institutions have used language to establish a singular fixed “truth” and construct separate opposites . I believe that new meanings can arise among the in-between space, the gray area where our minds mismatch and overlap. Through ambiguous instructions and unintelligible vowels, I aim to catalyze emergence and interference that deconstructs the system of meaning.
