The Wardenclyffe Project
A performance by Projekt Atol/Rastermusic.
Wardenclyffe is a town on Long Island in upstate New York where researcher and inventor Nikola Tesla established an experimental station for a so-called 'world system' in 1900. This 'world system' not only was supposed to create the possibility of wireless transmission of energy to any place in this world, but also to work as a worldwide communication and information system accessible for everybody. The experimental station was never fully finished and was given up on and torn down for lack of money after six years.
