Botborg's ‘instrument' is the Photosonicneurokineasthograph – a complex feedback machine incorporating an entangled mix of new and old technologies. Botborg demonstrations often include very loud sound played in combination with very fast flashing/strobe light.

Edwin van der Heide /NL: LSP (LASER / SOUND PERFORMANCE).
The performance LSP uses audio controlled lasers to create a three-dimensional environment that totally immerses the audience. The image is generated by means of a laser projecting on a thin layer of smoke in the space. Image and sound originate from the same real-time computer generated sine wave composition.

Semiconductor ( UK ) presentation and screening of their films.

Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand (RU/BY/NL) performance: 10000 PEACOCK FEATHERS IN FOAMING ACID.
The laser light is used to scan the surfaces of nucleating and dissipating soap bubble clusters. Unlike ordinary light, the laser's hyper-focused beam is capable of crawling through the micro and nano structures within a bubble's skin. This penetrating light generates a large-scale projection of normally invisible ionic streams as well as mind-boggling phenomena of non-linear optics recently discovered at the Lebedev Physics Institute ( Moscow ).
