Ranjit Bhatnagar makes installations and performances from sound and language. His heaviest work is Stone Song, a 7500 pound sound sculpture at Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts; and his lightest is Pentametron, a twitter poetry miner, made of code.

Rob makes a map from (and for?) the mind. And it spins at 33RPM. Taylor goes wild and knocks down so many problems! It's pretty oceanically epic.

Ranjit Bhatnagar is our guest this week! Brooklyn in the house! We talk about plastic made from blood (hemacite!), seeing faces in things (pareidolia! :-) ), the Church of the SubGenius, redaction, instrument making, and beaver pelts as currency.
Rob tests the flight characteristics of paper and plastic. Ranjit isn't the Smiley Face killer... well... probably isn't. Taylor's project is fire (and electricity)!
Mad props to The KLF. They burned a million quid. We didn't do that. Also, check our all our links. Holy cow!
