Shen Sum-Sum: Newsroom Orgasm

3 episodes in total. (Duration: around 15 minutes per episode)

We review three important international political events along with the talks from the country leaders of recent time. Except, the speeches are no longer being amplified, instead, they softly crawl into your ears, searching for the soft spot of your conscious. As if the actual occasions are built of and words and communities of void. Is nation, power, and its performance a collective orgasm?

Shen Sum-Sum

Sum-Sum is a Taiwanese artist / sound-designer and recordist based in Berlin. While continuing to work on film productions, she also moves onto sound installation and performances. Her interest lies in the imaginations and perceptions which could be evoked by hearing experience, and the symbolic and narrative characters which is naturally carried in sound. Her works mostly deal with the manipulation of spoken words, and hope to seek interpretations and discourses in cultural phenomena and its social and historical aspect through the form of sound art.
