About the work: This work was specifically created for the 2nd Mongolia Land Art Biennial. 

Based on the Mongolian folk long song of the same title “The Sun over the Placid World”, at Ikh Gazriin Chuluu – Dundgobi, the birth place of this sacred song, Kingsley Ng traced the musical contour of the tune by forming a rock landscape. 

The rocks are aligned perfectly to the sun path. A time-lapse video is made, where sunlight falls on the landform from dawn to dusk as if playing its musical score.
