    This project is driven by the concept of life and death. Our existence, by and large, tends to be materialistic and is therefore ephemeral. When we die, we leave behind all the materials that we cherish and even our body that holds our soul and our conscience. Life indeed is very fragile, even a blow of wind can take it away. In 2015, She bore a firsthand witness to one of those large scale destructions in the country of her origin as thousands of people perished in no time in a 7.9 magnitude earthquake. On the face of it, the data says that close to 9000 people died but the damage it caused to the ones who survived that scare is beyond imagination. Many of us lost our loved ones- mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, uncles and aunts. She lost her sister.

    We are all connected. We look different. We live in different geographical landscape, society, have different language, culture, etc. Every human is different from other and one reason to prove this is the difference in human finger prints. Each of us has his/her own unique finger prints that don’t match with other’s. However, we all have same red blood rushing through our veins and humans from all around the world have similar feelings and emotions. That’s why in some way we all are connected to each other.

    In this project, Mr. Shrestha’s works deals with the theme that is ‘We all are Connected’. For that He worked with finger prints and showed that connection through red line. As his theme has a broad prospect he has worked on it to make it Global Peace Project. With this reason he believes this Trans Studio Project-BAC can help him to share his Global Peace Project with entire world.

    shun_owadaShun Owada: Japan

    Shun Owada is an artist focusing on sound based in Tokyo. After he earned MFA from Inter Media course in Tokyo University of the Arts, He has been making both sound installations and computer music performances. Recently, his work was showed/performed in cities such as Berlin, Germany, Tokyo, Japan, Taipei, Taiwan and Bangalore, India.

    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    Shun’s  work was conceived from the relationship between nature and artifacts, and the story on the Kathmandu Valley. About 8000 years ago, the Kathmandu Valley was a lake, the lake dried up over the years and the city was formed. This geological fact is also described as a legend that Manjushree flew down to the Kathmandu Valley, cut the mountain and drained water. He is interested in is the relationship between this natural phenomenon and the mythology. Since 8000 years, humans have observed, memorized and handed down this natural phenomenon beyond generations. Probably humans have used their voices until people acquire letters and this story can have a firm form. Ancient voices are not recorded. It melts among stories and things.

    In this sound installation, the humidity of the soil is measured by a sensor, and according to the value, a voice saying “Manjushree” is variously time-stretched from 8000 times to equal scale. The modulated voice vibrates two objects by the special contact speaker and is reverberated through them.
