We live in a tumultuous media environment. There is widespread  confusion,
uncertainty and awe at the inventiveness of the thousands  of people in
media networks who innovate, copy, tinker, recycle,  produce, remix and
relay. The protagonists of Tinker.Solder.Tap bring  alive the ways in which
the relationship between life and the media  has been re-scripted in the
various neighbourhoods of our cities. The  story begins in the mid-80s,
when a man returns home with an object  called a VCR. The chain of effects
that follows transforms  irreversibly the social life of the neighbourhood
and its  reverberations can be felt all over the world.
