1. 翼手目 Chiroptera (((^..^)))

蝙蝠在獵食過程會發出人類聽不到的高頻聲音,本組聲音裝置是以在關渡自然公園現地採集之東亞家蝠(Pipistrellus abramus,又叫做日本伏翼)所發出的超音波錄音為基礎所建構的。這種在關渡自然公園出現的蝙蝠,也是台灣最常見的種類之一。

The bats who are hunting their flying preys are making inaudible sounds: their voices are very high-­‐pitched, the frequency being way above what human ear can perceive. This sound installation is based on on-site ultrasonic recordings of the Japanese House Bat, Pipistrellus abramus, one of the most common bat in Taiwan and present in Guandu Nature Park.

2. 水生生物 Aquatic Organisms  ◦o0° o0⦾° o0⨀° o0o°




freshwater from lakes, bogs, ponds, rivers, and stream
all contain lifeforms

a pond is
a small body of still water formed naturally or by artificial means
certainly easier to access than the deep ocean
usually very shallow

our human body isn't able to swim there, we couldn't even put fully our head under the surface.
but would you try?
hold your breath and listen to the sounds in the water nearby?
