In response to the impact of high-profile whistleblowers, A Machine they’re Secretly Building is about how we got to the point where our governments are spying on us & how that’s changing who we are.

Running from 9 - 11 November.

A Machine they’re Secretly Building charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972’s Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and the terror of a future that might already be upon us.

From what might be a news desk, an office, a bedroom, a bunker under a mountain or a theatre, two people – reporters, senators, freedom fighters, or just concerned citizens like you – think about what it is to speak up, speak out, blow the whistle and lift the veil.

Proto-type have combined original text and classified intelligence documents with film from digital artist Adam York Gregory, and music and sound design by Paul J Rogers, to vent their frustration at the insidious machine of surveillance.
