well this turned out to actually look pretty nice
all this for one night, and hardly anyone even showed up, i'd guess it was at most 40 people
well that's just art i guess
there was also an audio installation accompanying the whole thing
we set up a transmitter and taped a bunch of old portable radios to trees or hid them in hedges, the effect was nicer than i thought it would be
i mean our part was ok, someone else fucked up the backend, which - among other things - led to a youtube advertisment being played back at full volume through the whole park
so that was fun
i also liked the part where someone accidentally unplugged the transmitter and suddenly you're in a dark park completely surrounded by distributed white noise that's just coming from everywhere
no seriously, that was amazing
also, imagine being paid 15€/h to tape radios to trees
that was not a career option school ever told me about
@aurora That does sound cool, honestly.
@aurora every time I’m like, nobody told me I could be paid a bunch to think about plugs & cables, my earliest special interest. It’s good stuff
@aurora wow 😍
@aurora ohh you made the trees pretty :3
