They came from planet Earth to feast their eyes on the choicest short films from up and coming film makers and hear the nowest sounds from London’s grooviest djs - the ritual is hosted in the bar by Richard E, film maker and member of London band Solar Apple Quarktette. Showing an edgy and challenging programme of film/video makers specialising in innovative camera and lighting effects in a variety of film and mixed video formats. On the decks we have breaks, jazz and bossa; funky soulful house and the smokiest hip hop and jazz funk.

An interactive surveillance evening of music, performance, new media and visual arts for paranoiacs, exhibitionists and voyeurs. We are living in the pupil of a thousand different eyes at any given moment. (Toffler). As Londoners, we are caught on surveillance cameras an average of 300 times per day. The growing popularity of voyeuristic-based media creates a climate where the iconography of CCTV has become an either naturalised or fetishised aesthetic of visual culture.
