Audience - conduction (via cue-cards: stimulus-response organized by Peevish)
From Wilson's notes:
Spencer had printed out some images on colored paper. 
I handed them to the people in the audience (6 cards) and informed them that
them holding up the cards would help direct us.  They participated well so this
piece was really really fun.  You see, each of us had our own reaction (not
discussed with others) to a particular card - the only thing we knew was which
card was ours, and we did not overlap.  One card, a red card just because that
stood out more however corny this might be, was a "stop" card for all of us.
People flashed their cards in interesting intervals and played little games
with us (the couple that had mine and another person's card swtiched cards
once they knew who they were influencing to see if we'd notice, we did but
it was pretty confusing for a second).  The audience was into this, and we
took advantage of an appropriate "stop" card eventually to stay stopped.
