Zhong Shuo (People say) is a sound installation made collaboratively by Australian sound artist Iain Mott, Beijing visual artist Ding Jie and the Chongqing art collective the Li Chuan Group comprising Li Chuan, Ren Qian and Li Yong. The work acts as a system for the collection and telling of stories and focuses on the rapid force of change in China. In 2005 two installations were created. The first was at the Long March Space in the Dashanzi district of Beijing and was launched on 20 August. The second was launched on 10 October at the Chongqing Planning Exhibition Gallery at Chaotianmen Square, Chongqing. Zhong Shuo received 3rd prize in the 2005 UNESCO Digital Arts Awards.

“众说”是由澳大利亚声音艺术家伊墨特( Iain Mott )和北京视觉艺术家丁洁合作完成的声音装置,长征艺术家驻地创作项目协助。该作品的创作,运用了人类学田野采样的的方法——定点收集以个体为单位的声音文 件(由具体的人,讲述对中国社会变迁的看法),并将这些声音文件借助装置的形式呈现出来,其的延伸部分是采样录音通过网络在长征沿途传播。本次在北京长征 空间的展览,是整个项目第一个阶段,第二、三阶段将昆明、延安等地展开。

Zhong Shuo has been made possible by Iain Mott's Australia China Council Arts Fellowship which was brokered by Asialink. The project has received additional sponsorship by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Other generous support has been received from MAAP, Multimedia Art Asia Pacific and the project received initial support through ANAT's Conference and Workshop Fund. For their kind assistance, many thanks to the following:  Penelope Aitken, An Rui, Heidi Angove, Berenice Angremy, 798 Audio, Ros Bandt, Thomas Berghuis, Chen Ni, Chen Shao Dong, Dong Xun, Han Nan, Tim Kreger, Lu Jie, Kim Machan, Po Shui, Padmini Sebastian, Suresh Sebastian, Song Yi, Jim Sosnin, David Tung, Wang Dong and others.
