We are interested in the present, the now and there within society, the place we occupy in it as individuals.

Regarding narrative and aesthetic aspects, we lose ourselves and find us again at frontiers, many times we work outside the box, outside classifications, resulting in a multidisciplinary work, distant from usual genres.

We like the multidisciplinary. It defines us. We work from various artistic disciplines, using very different techniques in each new project, always related with the investigation we are undertaking. That's why we like and need to be surrounded by collaborators from different artistic and non-artistic disciplines, to contribute with their different points of view, that enrich the creative work. This multidisciplinary exchange makes us reconsider our work from very different perspectives, that many times are surprisingly unimaginable for us.

One day we met accidentally, a stage director, bored of established cliches and a video-artist, tired of the fake real-time/liveness. An illustrator and a light designer that enjoy generating sonic worlds. Both concerned with the immediate, and the social. Each investigating in different ways how to reach the audience, how to touch their hears and make them think. Thrilled by the sites-specific aspects, land art, video art, site responsive and context specific, augmented reality, sensors, soundscapes... and low-tec...

Passionate about the world we live in, though we often quarrel with it, we are just creating out third jioint project. It couldn't be in another way.
