Survival Research Labs Turns 30

Survival Research Labs just turned 30 today. Congratulations on an amazing three decades! SRL founder and director Mark Pauline writes:

30 years ago today, I started Survival Research Laboratories. I had come up with the idea of machine performances a few weeks earlier, and when the owner of a local free magazine, “Boulevards Magazine” heard my spiel, and learned that I was thinking of forming SRL as a company, he offered me, a free, full page ad space in his November issue.

I started working on the first SRL machine “The Demanufacturing Plant” the next week. It appeared in the first SRL show “Machine Sex” staged on St. Patrick’s Day in 1979.
