Drying rack (for clothing), rice paper, wooden clamps, and speakers
In artist's own claims on her work: "In 1994, I made a sound installation 'Yu Tang Chun'. It consisted more than one hundred drying racks. On each of the racks, clothes were not placed but instead was rice paper. There were more than 600 speakers hidden between the rice paper. The output sounds from the speakers was a digitally processed excerpt from The Peking Opera Yu Tang Chun." The installation, according to Qin, forms a poetic connection between the "east" and the "west", by an acute juxtaposition of their cultural emblems respectively -- rice paper vs. speaker, soundtracks from Yu Tang Chun vs. the soundtracks' electronic reproductions.
