Sound Space is a machine and spacial installation invented, designed, and coded by William Sumrall.

A computer's built in microphone registers any music, speech, or ambient sound and reproduces it in real time, on screen, as a sound wave designed and coded using Processing.

Ideally, the user approaches a laptop, presses the spacebar, and records a ten second clip of sound. During the ten seconds of recording, the code compiles a thirty-inch long static image of the sound wave off screen. The image is then sent over to an Adafruit thermal receipt printer using an ArduinoBoardUno. After the ten seconds elapses, the printer prints a thirty-inch receipt that the user can keep.
