My friend Alberta Chu is
My friend Alberta Chu is an incredible documentary filmmaker, who focuses her work on the blending of technology and culture. She recently finished a short film called ELECTRUM, about a fantastically wealthy weirdo rancher in New Zealand who commissions the erection of a gargantuan Tesla Coil next to his house. The artist enlists the help of a gang of meticulous engineers and subterranean gearhead culture jammers in San Francisco to build it. You can find out more about the video, and the other stuff Alberta is interested in at her site, Future Culture.
