Simon Blackmore - LSD Drive
Blackmore's custom-built LSD Drive is able to read lost data on apparently useless CDs, and process it using a program written in the Open Source software, SuperCollider. Light Sensitive Disk Drive is a fully functioning prototype hardware/software product that explores ideas of technological progress, technological waste and its environmental impact. CDs in various states of degradation can be played on the drive to produce different sounds from the lost areas of data.

Blackmore is based in Manchester. Since 2001, he has been reinventing the function or image of culturally iconic objects and products to make sculptures that are presented in a range of social contexts. Projects include converting a caravan into a gallery, making audio laptops from logs, making a machine to play a guitar according to the weather and turning a pole lathe into a musical instrument.
