A hovering object that explores and manipulates transitional public spaces with particular acoustic properties. By constantly recording and replaying these ambient sounds, the hovering sphere produces a delayed echo of human activity.
Space replay responds sonically to people and its surroundings by means of a battery-powered Arduino, a Wave Shield hacked to record and playback audio and a small speaker. These were inserted into the balloon after being vacuum formed in the shape of a cone, in order to enhance the sound coming from the speaker.
Casa Malaparte is a house on the eastern side of the Isle of Capri, Italy. It is one of the best examples of Italian modern and contemporary architecture. The house was conceived around 1937 by the well-known Italian architect Adalberto Libera for Curzio Malaparte. Malaparte actually rejected Libera’s design and built the home himself with the help of Adolfo Amitrano, a local stonemason.
