Interactive Morse Host, Mixed-media, Sparkfun Pro Micro, Mini Push-Pull Solenoid, Bluetooth Module, Arduino, custom software, 2017

The Host is an electronic parasite. Once it's placed near a public sculpture, The Host takes control of its resonatory body in order to reproduce messages that it gets from people around.

By means of a small solenoid, every time The Host receives a bluetooth message, translates it into morse code and plays it mechanically through the sculpture that hosts it.

The Host’s goal is to create temporary areas for sharing messages by decontextualizing a public object. By intervening in the public space, The Host allows those interacting with it to give voice to a mute body in the everyday space.
