srl.jpgOver the weekend SRL (Survival Research Labs) held one of their live shows with robots blowing up robots and what looks like complete destruction, in a brutally mechanical arty sort of way. Coverage here. Survival Research Laboratories was conceived of and founded by Mark Pauline in November 1978. Since its inception SRL has operated as an organization of creative technicians dedicated to re-directing the techniques, tools, and tenets of industry, science, and the military away from their typical manifestations in practicality, product or warfare [Via BoingBoing].

      this was my first srl show and i must say it was pretty awesome. got to stand on the narrow, three story fire escape tacked to the side of a building…along with about a hundred other people. the event was definitely worth driving out.
