Structure Study IV is a musical performance where two flutists translate, practice, and perform a musical piece composed of dead nocturnal flying insects from both Hsin Chu and New York. 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.
