While street art has a rich history in terms the formation of the urban landscape, mainly through the appropriation of wall space, Sound Tossing offers a way to play with urban aesthetics through filling space with unique acoustic input. It provides new ways to add meaning to public spaces.

The project was inspired by so-called Shoe Tossing or Shoefiti, the practice of hanging shoes which have been tied together on overhead cables such as power or telephone lines. Sound Tossing operates in a similar way to the visual codes used in Shoe Tossing; speakers are connected via cables to audio components which function in this form of urban communication as “throwing tools”.
