On March 11, Stony Brook University’s library will host their first Spy Hunt. According to the website, the goal of the event is to mimic spy techniques from the Revolutionary War, including codes, ciphers, invisible ink and hidden messages while testing the research skills of the participants and teaching them about the tools available to students through the library. A photo essay would focus on shots of a single group of participants in their efforts to complete the scavenger hunt from beginning to completion. I will first get into contact with the event coordinators and ask them to assign me to a group of their choosing. I won’t be participating in the event, only chronicling it.
