the spectrum, The Spy School gathers information, throws it in to
the mix, and sends it back out through the airwaves. Radio-talk, phone-talk,
cctv, your whispered conversations and surreptitious glances, captured,
reconfigured, rebroadcast. You'll hear yourself echoed on the soundtrack,
find that you're dancing to your own projected image - you may arrive
at the party to find you're already there. The Spy School infiltrates
scenes with its human avatar, wired for sound and image and feeding
the DJ and VJ with angles on the party-goers. And there's a performer
on the floor, ranging through moves and masks - but no one's quite
sure who's watching who.
