Their output spans a spectrum of forms including videos, performance & live music, sculpture & installation, often extending beyond the computer screen. Each of them using a dirent approach and aesthetic, they have in the past collaborated on- and offline. Creating works with outdated hardware, dated machinery, classic gamecosoles, instruments & user devices. Combining craft and technology with hard work, collaboration and fun.
