In the summer of 2009, Substitute Materials set out to test if electronic communication could have been built at any time in history, if someone only had the right information. Using no modern tools or materials and relying entirely on material found on the ground in the wilderness, a telegraph switch producing .7 volts of electricity was completed in November. Using the techniques learned during Immaculate Telegraphy, an entire telegraphic network could have been constructed in the stone age.

This project was supported by the Eyebeam Honorary Residency.
