Lightscape Project focuses on the relationship between sensory experience and external structures within the city. Modern societies and cities maintain their order through quantization and standardization. Emily Thompson, historian of technology at Princeton, has written that within social landscapes, the influence of the city far exceeds that of nature. Moreover, these landscapes are in a constant state of flux. Man-made noise and light are the inevitable byproducts of modern life. The daily moving and behavior in the public space shapes our memories of the city. Different streets and routes, which are the elements that construct the collective memory, evoke the variety of urban life. People instinctively avoid the dark, and this use of public space, based on the presence or absence of light, affects the soundscape of cities.

This generative audio-visual system transformed the orderly lights on the street into harmonious resonances. The light and the sound, masking each other, serve as the basis for visual and aural interaction as manifest in videos and installation.
