Survival Research labs

There are a few groups who are so clear, so unique that they have become iconic in technoarts. SRL is one of them. After waiting in a 1/2 km long queue, paul Vanouse and I wound up nearly standing in the 'mosh pit' near the huge van de Graaf generator. Many of the pieces were classic ones like the 2x4 chucker, and the subsonic pulsejet.

So spectacular. So deadly. Violet tendrils and pulsejets aimed in my face. So amazing. I also realize that while some people were yellong abotu the people standing int e front, but I also understood that there were millions of volts flying around feet from me, crackling of propane tanks. Really gave me a sens of perspective.
