Our practice is based on a mutual contamination of art and architectural processes and concerns. We continually and incrementally shift our position in relation to these disciplines, testing, playing and ‘worrying’ at their borders and intersections. We respond to architectural and city space; the way that it is occupied, adapted, perceived and regulated. An insistence on back and forth, observation of places on the point of change and an examination of aspirations for these environments alongside realities initiate the terms of our engagement. Our work seeks to provoke the imaginary, introducing an ‘other-world’ of play, resistance and dream to each situation encountered. The work is propositional, sometimes realized, sometimes remaining as open invitations for action by the viewer, sometimes forming models or blueprints for another scale or condition of realization. We use text, event, still and moving imagery, installation and construction to construct situations, an informal architecture of possibility, moving between material fact and the fiction of our imagination.
