Created in 2017, the Speaker Tower is a technological device that claims the “sonic space” from a “public” perspective. It is an urban-scale portable double-sided rotating loudspeaker system that can be deployed both as an instrument of protest and an instrument of peace. It was conceived as a piece of cultural infrastructure and a tool to expand our access to the invisible dimensions of the city.
