This project explores the possibility of architecture to absorb media to become a medium. The influence of human actions in a physical and digital way on and within a space to transform an obsolete architectural object into a prosthetic device that expands bodies beyond their own spatiality. Turning the night sky in a communicational spectacle. Entertainment becomes the
force to enable an interconnected network of media, artifacts and social interaction.
