Artist statement
Our work can be described as an investigation of time-frames; their matrix and their existences.
Distinctive, curious and tactile, we draw comparisons between the past and the future.
A theme that influences the perception of the “self” and the surroundings.
We play with the presumption of interlacing time-frames and exploring the space they create.
With a focus on three dimensional shapes, the physical and tactile experience is an important part of the expression.
We  have always been interested in working with history, the lack of history, and the creation of it. Aspects necessary to build a memory.
We believe that through making a past of the future, we can create a curiosity of history that has not yet happened.
