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 installations 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.
