“A leap second is an extra second between :59 and :00 that is left invisible on our watches and most computer systems. It’s usually faked using one of three glitchy processes – repeat, freeze, smear – to correctly adjust clock-time to the rotation of the earth. For us it means an opportunity to intervene in the flow of time creating a virtual synapse for new connections.” For more information about the Festival…http://leapsecond.online
