«Having united in one, we realized that the “old” mediums do not have artistic expressiveness, but have a powerful historical code that has already become part of the culture of perception, and the “new” ones, in turn, require a deep rethinking in order to become a modern tool and assistant in artistic work, and not just presenting oneself as pure technology.
We explore the paradigm of new media, combining traditional artistic techniques and new technologies. At the place of their intersection, new meanings are formed that cannot exist without this intersection. We call this phenomenon “cross-media” and use it in our work as the main approach. When working, we use the strategy of natural scientists, which often gives strange results and allows us to look at the object of study from an unexpected point of view.»
