I am the Web Content Lead for this year’s Burning Flipside. In addition to commanding a legion of writers and photographers who are eager to do my every bidding, I also write articles myself. My latest is about Turn Off Your TV, an art installation at the upcoming event:

The boxes will be filled with light that illuminates “colorbars,” old-fashioned television test patterns. The art is meant to inspire nostalgia in the viewer for an older form of technology, while simultaneously reminding them of what they have opted to leave behind by visiting Burning Flipside.
