As David says “Remember Disastohouse this Saturday in Brighton with the pale boys. The beginning of a new project, ‘Three Equations.’ Uncovering the algebraic equations that determine perception in human beings.
It’ll be a long road, like the last pbs project that resulted in Chinese Whispers. I estimate two decades start to finish. Chalkboards are suggested. Don’t worry it will be entertaining as well. Places limited to 30 people. Reserve a place”
