This unique sound sculpture come apart and can be plucked like some of Marxhausen’s other sound sculptures or small objects could be placed into the capsule and it could be used like a Stardust. This piece may have been a step in the process that led Marxhausen from open, plucked sound sculptures to the closed, Stardust sound sculptures. The details on the outside of the capsule are exquisite.
