1. I chose Akio Suzuki’s Hana, in which he put a vase of fresh flowers in the center of a gallery and changes the flowers everyday. As stated in the article, this piece makes the viewer reconsider their perceptual and conceptual ideas of this still life. I would create a sound piece similarly, with a pair of my flamenco shoes. As a practicing flamenco dancer, flamenco is filled with sound and rhythm. It would be interesting to see how the physical elements of flamenco dance/music could be translated into a still life sculpture. The elements might be a fan, pile of nails, and/or the sole of a shoe. It would be curious to see how these objects could be sonically interpreted.
2. One example of unsaid communication is the pronunciation of my name, and I’m sure many other names. The unsaid knowledge of my name is in Japanese language the usual “i” of English is an “e” sound. The “tsu” in my name is almost silent. It should be pronounced: http://hearnames.com/pronunciations/search/mitsuko.html
