The Sound Station presents the true and unfiltered presence of the internal nature and electromagnetic residual of a device. The array of speakers function as an analog means of focusing on different frequency channels. Each speaker has a specific frequency response ranging from low to high. The speakers are arranged to give the owner & observer of a device a stereo listening experience.
The Affection Research Lab has been created to develop Affection Stations and The Signal Archive. With the mission to become the seed of a device-affection development center and institution. ARL provides a counterpoint to today’s utilitarian computation culture and help to make affective computing more common. ARL fosters device-affection through the framework of the immaterial residuals and incidental sounds of our electronic devices, not through their surface features, determined outputs, or physical attributes.
The Stations are a collection of interactive experiences which listen and transcode a device's unique incidental sound -- electromagnetic radiation -- exposing them to be more than just as tools, toys, or gizmos but sources of greater meaning.
