The Mic Moss is a modular system (under development) made of a special cladding material that can be altered by any kind of sound. Equipped with small microphones the surface continuously “listens” to its environment. Each microphone has a heating pad attached to it, which is able to heat up the plate within a certain radius. The plate – covered with thermochromatic pigments – will change its color depending on the steel plate heating up or cooling down. By that, the surface becomes an imprint of the acoustic noises in its environment. The system consists of 2 by 1 meter steel plates that can be connected to build a larger surface.
