The places we choose for our work are often transitional places: buildings about to be pulled down or reallocated, changing nature , “lost areas” in urban spaces.
Actions and installations can be realised in front of an audience, in the “lab situation” of one's own studio or in other places without an audience.
Again and again we adress the in-visible in our work, things obscure and irreversible as integral parts of every incident.
Condition as incident and action as event are in equal parts purpose and result of our approach to use time as an instrumental component.
Installations - objects - actions - LandArt – light. These are - be they permanent or temporary – results of our research of and in the obscure.
Time, space and perception are fields of experimentation via which we approach what surrounds us and what we are part of – nature and culture, reality and realness.
