About me
Jugglers of jobs and roles, stories and plans, when we're not knee deep in sawdust in the carpentry studio we're learning Unity video game software and planning how to weave them effortlessly into one project... Our work is often site specific and interactive. We like making environments that people can be in, that have stories and that rely on audiences being active within a space. Three years ago, while studying 'Performance Design and Practice' at Central Saint Martins we set up our own company. Through an opportunity from our Students Union our first clients became The Royal Academy of Arts. Since then, we have become frequent residents of the RA: Lates program and were very proud to receive the 2016 UAL MEAD Scholarship to create our first non-commissioned piece 'Man on the Moon'.
