 This project is born from an investigation in questioning our communications and miscommunications.  I conducted a group of choir singers to perform  Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star . Although I have no training as a conductor, I used gestures (inspired by body language from everyday life) to direct the singers. They, as professionally trained choir singers wearing double-layered soundproof earmuffs, could only interpret and respond independently. Nuanced power relations in a communication process were performed through fingertips, vibrating vocal chords, genuine confusion, dysfunctional translation, isolation of a collective and gradually collected insecurities and solidarities.
