Encampment on Bumpkin Island

AstroDime Transit Authority is going to set up a temporary communication network on Bumpkin Island in the Boston Harbor Island, this Labor Day weekend. Using tin cans, string, and ingenuity, we will attempt to connect the other artists and visitors to this island via a highly sophisticated telecommunications network. We will provide phone cards, and take surveys as to the effectiveness of this service. At the end of the weekend, we will take our network down. Come visit us on Saturday and Sunday September 1 and 2!

Here’s some information on how to get there:
