ESCARAVOX are assemblages of discarded rural infrastructures, reprogrammed as voice-giving-publicdevice.

The aim of this project is to endow Matadero Madrid, former slaughterhouse of the city and now an institution self defined as “public space for contemporary culture, with views on the river”, with the necessary material devices and institutional protocols to prompt a connection between the aforementioned models of intervention in the cultural field. To achieve this, the scheme proposes equipping the open spaces of the old abattoir with varied types of large-span mobile structures with sound amplifying systems, stage lighting and audiovisual projection systems, so that in combination with sliding stands, they may serve as auxiliary structures for any public performance held in this space.

The use of these facilities would be organized in the same way as municipal tennis courts, which are booked by the hour. The materiality of the infrastructure is based on the idea of an odd assemblage of already inexpensive elements. Irrigating systems, Almería greenhouse fabrics, cheap plastic chairs… A short of composite of ready mades, using existing technologies in a different way of that they were produced for. It is a technological reapropiation process, the office relates with the possibility of queer uses of available systems.
