site specific video projection +powder screen + ambisonic sound
Metamorphosis is a site specific video installation with ambisonic sound. Along with Kang's life-long interest in "aliens" who do not have a communication method that would work in the boundary of normative normality, her video often shows a body transmitting images or sounds without human vocal organs. In Metamorphosis, the body in the video, which is incorporeal, gives an illusion of materialistic three dimensional existence on top of a powder screen made of salt on the floor. The body transforms into sound spinning around in the space, which physically embraces the audience. The flat image imitating the real world becomes sound which seems illusory but actually has more physical presence that touches the audience.
