David Spooner: Electronic Football League

2nd - 23rd August

The Walls

The Carriers 

Traded with the half time sirens.

A team of robotic footballers infected with the ‘Tiger Slime’ virus. 

The Visitors seep into their clockwork socks. Sixteen footballers break away from the EFL code and journey from freezing stadium home world to over time across the cold mountains. On the other side you step into the vistitors home world, the hot archaepeligo. 

Are you ready to play the game of Electronic Football?
