Architect, open-source designer and Design Indaba Speaker, Nicolás Kisic Aguirre, has created an instrument dubbed the Momoprot or Módulo Móvil de Protesta (mobile protest module). The Momoprot is a way to generate collective noise, unify protestors against the same objective
This unlikely sounding creation has been described as an Anti-fascist Drum Machine, a name coined by Marcel Zaes, and has been used to raise the voice of public protests.
The Peruvian designer’s open-source projects are a combination of sound, architecture and the mind. The aim of his work is to explore the psychological effects of sound in public.
Aguirre spoke at the 2018 Design Indaba Conference where he first presented his Modular Rhythm Machine. Watch his full talk here.
