On June 25, Eyebeam resident artist Kenseth Armstead will be screening scenes from his feature action/art film Spook 1781: the invisible life of double James using a process he has developed called “Open Source Casting”: allowing the general public to become the stars of his film. For the past five months, over 100 people enacted in HD video, the true story of the double agent/slave-spy James Armistead Lafayette. Viewers were able to select a character, like James, one of his two handlers: the Marquis Lafayette (General, US continental Army) and the Lord Charles Cornwallis (General, British Army); or one of a number of other historical supporting characters involved in the American Revolution.
