Ling Ting 2 (in Mandarin hanyu pinyin, means ‘Listening’) is an interactive sound sculpture that encourages participation and contemplation from its audience. The shape of the steel structure appears to be unusual forms of the tuba, French horn or listening instruments where the curved lines and organic form creates a sense of curiosity for the viewer, inviting one to come up close to interact with it. Many city-dwellers have become too busy listen to listen; this playful work was conceptualized by the artist to create a conducive space to inspire an act of listening. The act of listening becomes a major component of this creative experience, offering its participator a space for isolation and critical reflection. In March 2015, Ling Ting 2 premiered on the steps of the Grand Palais in Paris, during the Art Paris Art Fair and was featured in the International New York Times.
