Catalyst Radio was a found object that became an art + technology project with collaborator Jessen Jurado. This piece melds the old and new technologies of radio design. Images of the original vacuum tubes mechanism have been photographed and collaged on all sides of the radio's shell. Solid state electronics, replaced the inside, as they are a fraction of size and weight, as well as allowing the radio to be controlled remotely with smart phones. Below is a zine that was created for the World Maker Faire to teach a variety of ages about upcycling old technology.
