A series of experiments using long distance communication. Questions and answers have been flying across the river Spree and through Skype with project partners The Islanders in Nottingham. Semaphore flags made from Heris fencing were provided for wasteland users with examples of semaphore code while we took up position on the opposite bank to conduct ad hoc interviews. Interviewees included a small family who were ‘Suchen für schatz’, ‘on a treasure hunt’ in the neighbouring Ice Fabric building.
During the launch of Wasteland Twinning Nottingham at One Thoresby St, Nottingham, the technique was stretched to it’s limit overcoming pixilation and transnational distances while The Islanders and their audience replied to our question ‘Anything to report?’ through the use of spoken Morse Code; “Do, Dash Dot Dash.”.
