Wu Hao’s glass painting depicts a seaside city called Brighton, and the audio file comes from street warning signals on the streets of Cork. The artist intercepted two situations in which he had the most frequent contact with himself. He mixed the different rhythms and atmospheres of the two cities, and used a highly emotional attitude to allude to the strangeness and numbness in real life.
