The Biefeld–Brown effect, which leads on to Projet Montgolfier, flying saucers in 50s France / the Hand Drawn Map Association / vault 217 offers up things from the Special Collections and Archives at the George Mason University Libraries (a pleasingly chunky piece of 60s collegiate) / we still haven’t found time to play with the Audiotool / very, very long photographic exposures.
