"You are so Funny" is a light activated sound device created by the collective Liu Dao 六岛. A torch flashed at a panoramic print on canvas standing horizontally on the floor, produces sounds of laughing and giggling which vary depending on the area onto which the light is projected. Twenty different laughing arrangements are triggered whenever the flashlight points at it. The effect is a large laughing chorus conducted by the action of a flashlight.
