For the Art Hackathon Showcase we undertook a complete redesign due to the dangerous and potentially flammable nature of our original device! The heating element was replaced by a miniature shredder and the structure of the machine was reduced, formalised and made into one complete object. The night was a massive success with hundreds of people texting in to get things off their chest from within the event, and from afar where people were watching on the live stream. Keep your eyes peeled at http://www.wearenotlistening.com for further info on when the machine is next being exhibited, for now I’ll leave you with a photo and video round-up of the final project:
