A black-suited and helmeted SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) team invades a college library, attempting to defuse an apparent hostage situation. Inside, a man with a ‘super soaker’ toy machine gun pushes a teen captive down between rows of books, shouting out threats to the militarized police that are whispered to him by an unseen drama coach. What is hidden here ... and what form does the revelation of suppressed information take?

After conquering Amazon, the self-proclaimed ‘Thieves of the Invisible’ take on Google Inc. examining it not as a usual corporation, but as a global conspiratorial phenomenon. The Google story is revealed as a twisted and collusive relationship-linking network of computers, servers, employees and users.

15:00 Constraint City – The Pain of Everyday Life

"Constraint City" is a critical performance in urban space played out by wearing a corset consisting of straps equipped with motors and a wi-fi enabled gaming console. The project stands as a sarcastic contribution to the discussion of ‘locative' and 'wearable media’ while linking into a tradition of psychogeography, the philosophising of pleasure and pain, whilst pondering the ‘freedoms’ of everyday life.

16:30 Monopolio

In this hacked version of the classic Monopoly game scenario, the players assume the role of the most influential world powers haggling over the 'transition to democracy' of a developing country. It’s a combat that allows for almost any strategy – deals, cheating and blackmail emerge at a scale never before experienced on such a small game board.
