win a tennis match when half of the court is simply not visible is
to play a match against echoes. When the first ball passes over the
net it returns as an echo, modulated by distance, impact and speed.
As the match progresses layer upon layer of echoes create feedback
loops that break down the distinction between cause and effect. This
is the setting for Motherboard's latest drama. The players, a man
and a woman with both secrets to share and secrets to hide, are involved
in an intricate battle of conflicts and intrigue where the rules of
the game are constantly changing. Can such a match be resolved? That
is a matter for the court to decide.
