dorkbot Tokyo #000002 will take place at Machida International Print Art Museum in Tokyo on the 2nd of October. This time, the event's theme is "bend++," that is to "bend" various electronic artifacts and turn them into something. The first dorkbot in Tokyo (#000001) took place on the 12th of May this year (general summary in English). A couple of presentations I can't help talking about: the music/noise performance by Atsuhiro Ito and the demonstrations by "Tocho Denki Daigaku/Onshitsu Kojo Iinkai." Ito played a fluorescent light tube. The noice produced by a lit fluorescent light tube is amplified to produce explosive feedback noise of low frequency flickering.
