Structure Study II is a musical performance where a trumpet player translates, practices, and performs a musical piece composed of dead nocturnal flying insects from Hsin Chu. I captured these insects by first applying adhesives to blank musical sheets, then using artificial lights at night to attract flying insects that were attracted to lights to be randomly stuck onto the sheets.
