Interesting to create a meeting between at least two very different kinds of people, opera lovers, internet art lovers. Yes lovers, passionate people. To have these two groups infect one another. To create crossovers, to mutate these groups.
In fact there was a third group present at the venue, people who were interested in the political aspects of security and protection.
Reactions, very different, geeks and people who listened to the stream were pleased, most of the others missed something, were disturbed, pushed a bit out of their normal patron of behaviour.
