The notion of future retrospective narrative favors the idea that history and time do not move linearly. With one foot in the present and one foot in the fictional, the reality is presented as a continuous act of hybridization: Local /Remote, Physical/Virtual, Natural/Synthetic, Techno/Cultural. We are striving to find a particular relationship to the otherness, trying to find new dynamics of exchange between listeners and receivers, which demand not the servitude from the listener but rather a listener that speaks. we want to critically locate a human place in different human-animal-machine entanglements.

With our work we question the relationship between the human body and its environment, and what happens between the bodies. We understand our work as seamless – the interaction between computation, algorithms, the material and the virtual. living systems & machines.
