“It’s a bad time of the year to be sitting in a tram with bags of stuff for the show, or to drag a big work wrapped up in a waste bag with the wind grabbing it like a kite. Well, one of us has it a bit easier when everything can just be fitted onto a USB drive or something. But of course it depends on what we end up making.

It feels a little unreal to think about the show as a clear concept. It’s more like a deconstruction of the irony poisoned digital-native lifestyle, in really the only way we can do it. Admittedly we sometimes have to compromise because one of us likes narratives while the other one would like to see his work as constituting a kind of opposite to meaning, a black hole if you like.

Of course, these days it’s possible to take a picture even of a black hole.”
