Jason assisted Ralf Baecker in bringing his "Irrational Computing" exhibition to the Schering Stiftung Gallery on Unter den Linden, right in the heart of Berlin, Mitte. The show was up from October, 2011 until January, 2012. Ralf's work deals with pulling natural frequencies out of crystals, remixing the frequencies into a live soundtrack, and lighting up the crystals by applying direct voltage via tiny needles. Five sculptures send and receive data to and from a custom programmed microcontroller that sequences the entire installation.
