WIRED visits The Rooms Festival, Bristol, a three-day celebration of arts and technology. An artificially starlit pathway wound towards the entrance of an abandoned courthouse in central Bristol, through an avenue lined with fake pink-blossom trees. At the end of the path stood a flashing, bleeping swing that called passersby towards it with blinking lights and a musical tune. To the right of the swing there was a set of stairs that led to the courthouse's basement. Jakob Sabra stood the bottom of the stairs contemplating his death -- with a smile on his face. He was trying to figure out what to carve on his gravestone. With conviction he picked up a piece of chalk.
