The chain reaction

Home

The polyreactory assemblage of contemplation, gadgetry, and exothermic liberation (from the Kircher Society)…

January’s Inaugural Meeting of the Athanasius Kircher Society concluded with Jesse Ferguson setting off a 20-ft. long Rube Goldberg-esque contraption that he had constructed across the length of the stage. The spring-loaded, balloon-popping, laser-emitting, semi-automatic-rubber-band-shooting, fireball-producing contraption was designed in Seattle, mailed to New York, and reconstructed in a single afternoon. Jesse has now uploaded a video of his Polyreactory Assemblage in its native environs, his apartment.

    Fire stunts in apartments are not cool. That said, as long as its YOUR apartment, it’s a cool homage to Rube Goldberg.

    I sat in the Tech Museum watching that video. It’s about 30 minutes long and entirely hypnotic.
