Metal Detectives

Metal Detectives is a performance which creates a spectacle within the ordinary, urban landscape.  A group of performers investigate objects they come across while on a co-ordinated walk through the city.  The performers use magnets to test whether each object is magnetic, regardless of material.  Through this form of psycho-geography, participants learn to renavigate familiar spaces, and become like alien visitors to our world.
