kHz (2017) uses inaudible frequency (ultrasonic) and bioluminescent algae to explore the connection between life and sound wave. When the frequency of inaudible sound penetrates through the bioluminescent algae, each cells visualise the inaudible sound by glowing themselves. At the same time, the moment of shining also means the death of the cell. Because when the ultrasonic waves travel through the plankton, it works like a sonic gun, breaking the cells.
