This inhabitable sound sculpture is designed for both sound performance or self-generated music. It is a simplified version of the Mercury Seven mission capsule, in the manner of Walden’s cabin. It convokes questions of autonomy and solitude, but also contemplation. This production is the result of a combination of the book by Henry David Thoreau, Walden or Life in the Woods (1854) and the Mercury Seven space programme (1958) whose mission was to send men into space.
