Artistic Statement

As a team, we are interested in how people interact with urban spaces. Our work is interventionist in nature; we seek to insert points of engagement in the urban fabric in order to instigate reflection and dialogue. Through careful observation of overlooked spaces, we create contextual work that invites viewers to think about their urban environment or aspects of contemporary culture in a new light.
