While in San Francisco, I was invited to videotape a walkthrough of the Survival Reasearch Labs. SRL has been making machines and performing with them around the world since 1978. Violet Blue was my kind and enthusiastic host and she showed me the workshop, machines and materials that are packed into this industrial building. There is a spirit of ingenuity in this place that is palpable. The possibilities, potential, tools, and materials are crammed into the warehouse space. The raw creative potential to make anything at all made me giddy. When a workshop has been used and built up continuously for 25 years, it has a life of it's own. Because all the machines were crammed into corners and stacked up and under tarps, you've really got to look at their website to see what the machines look like. When we finished video-taping, Violet told me that they are being evicted from their workshop space. I'm thankful I had the opportunity to see it and make this video to share before it moves to a new location. They have a performance coming up on August 11th in San Jose.
