Nicolás Kisic Aguirre is an architect and transdisciplinary sound artist who creates machines that explore and illuminate the social and political nature of sound in public space. In 2018, he graduated from the MIT program in Art, Culture and Technology. Informed by his background in architecture and a lifelong fascination with machines, Kisic Aguirre designs and builds sound instruments that explore the connection between public space, power, technology, and sound. His critical and aesthetic practice is open-source, collaborative, and deeply engaged with the public.

His work has been presented at the MIT Museum, Venice Biennial, Dutch Design Week, Ars Electronica Festival, Design Indaba Conference, and at various other experiences and interventions in Japan, Chile, Germany, Peru, Australia, Colombia, and the United States.
