My project for the Travellers Box invoked it as a mobile web server during the second week of March, 2010. This became a paranoia-tinged space for me to develop a project, titled dubdubdub, using illegally downloaded content as source material (a file-shared copy of Gus van Sant's 1998 Psycho re-make of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film of the same name).
