Kaffe is known for making site-specific works using self-designed software matrices and feedback within the space, the site then becoming her instrument. Her Sonic Bed_London, part of the Worldwide Bed Project, received an Award of Distinction at Prix Ars Electronica this year. She also has been making a growing body of composed works through collaborations with a variety of people, including community members from the site of her work and a wide range of interdisciplinary professionals. She currently is working with NASA astronauts researching the sonic experience of space travel.

Weather Made is another site-specific public work of hers that uses taut wires strung through the Australian outback.
