CARPET
A carpet printed with the pattern and texture of the original terrazzo floor to interrupt the sound of footsteps.
 

In the second movement I put a carpet, a soft material with a subtle sound to the reception space, where is a very busy area, people coming in and out constantly with different footstep sound produced by walking on the terrazzo floor.

I mimic the exact pattern and texture of the original floor and print it onto a piece of carpet to replace the floor. People will not notice too much about the material changing, but they will realize the footstep sound has been altered.
