These speaker woofers are salvaged from junk and repurposed as various musical instruments. Our lives are mediated through the omnipresent speaker; when you’re talking to mum on the phone, their voice is transmitted and reproduced with clarity thanks to this technology; anytime you listen to music with headphones, the tiny earbud in your ear uses a transducer that works much like the one in front of you. It creates vibrations in the air that our ears perceive as sound, and in this instance, that we can also visualize with our eyes.
