BALLAST | 41,41961, -8,30318 |

Autonomous and mobile unit for broadcasting | 2012 
Ballast is an autonomous and mobile spatial device that will be the physical support to capture and transmit Soopa's sound events and activities. This radio station acts as the meta-space that condensates the whole program as a radio art project and provides a permanent broadcast/streaming/archive of an influx of events.

Ballast is composed of an assemblage of identical light-weight modules, easily transportable assuring the conditions for its mobility. Assuming the radio station infrastructure as a round table connected to an antenna, the space surrounding its users is an insulated and absorbent acoustic capsule.

Ballast is a time vortex, allowing the expansion of the possibilities to explore and experience sound.
