ALMA MUSIC BOX

To help raise awareness of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) telescope, we collaborated with the National Observatory of Japan to create the ALMA Music Box. With radio signal data captured by the telescope from the dying star R Sculptoris, we produced 70 music discs that can be played on a customized music box. The resulting somber melody is our requiem to the distant dying star 950 light-years away. The project debuted at the 21_21 Design Sight Museum in Tokyo and has gone on to tour several other museums.
