‘Sphere’, the most recent work by Nongyao was created under the idea of the relationship between space and time: sounds plays the role as a medium among the two, and the magnetic tapes as surface that conceive shocking waves, encapsulating time as the reel turns. Sphere works as physical evidence that could stretch out through time in comparison to the virtual Sphere that is expanding only in specific realm.

Nongyao has found a new way to work with magnetic tape players by presenting sounds through different objects in order to react with audience’s recognitive senses. Audiences will be surrounded with the atmosphere of modified music that are stretched and slowed down until the senses are distorted. Some sounds linger with the audiences like ear worms while at the same time they do not recognize any of the melody anymore. Audiences are witnessing the disappearing of one dimension and entering to another.
