Starting Thursday and finishing Sunday, the Showroom in St John's Wood will put on four nights of talks, discussions and performances called Signal:Noise. This event will explore many forms of information and media that influence our culture. It will bring forth debates all about the notions of 'feedback', and its effect on social and political life in our times.
