She published the book Stone Theatre by Revolver (Berlin, 2016). Her work investigates processes of transformation and energy, using methods that often come close to scientific research methodologies. She has transversely examined processes on a microscopic and global scale. In her work, Sposati juxtaposes material and historical processes in order to challenge the material in its official time and its significance. Her Phonosophia instruments address the reversibility of the role of object and subject, which questions who these agents are and what an “object” is. Specifically, the musical instruments pay special attention to the importance of the body of the musician and the instrument and how these bodies provoke each other.
