This paper is the documentation of my thesis project, Lang Song, an art installation with educational attributes that reinterprets a traditional Chinese poem from the 9th century, 夜雨寄北（Written On A Rainy Night To A Friend In The North）. The audience experiences the beauty of classical Chinese poetry through a poetry translation combined with recitation and animation. The installation is presented in both horizontal and vertical facets, reinterpreting the traditional Chinese poetry, a typical type of refined conventional Chinese culture in a new form, involving memorizing, understanding, triggering the concern of exploration. This project is a quest of teaching myself about tradition, appreciating the beauty of poetry, introducing one culture to another with the accommodation to target culture conventions.
