Tokyo / second workshop day

So today it's hardware hacking with Nic Collins.

After hooking up a speaker to a 9 volt battery, they are now all emerged in their battery-operated radios. Opening them up, making connections that god never thought of, and the space is beautifully engulfed in a vibrant buzz of crackles. Since communication through the english language is not working that well, Nic choose to work by example: in silence showing everyone how to make and break connections. That's what makes the buzzing room even more interesting: there's little talking...
