We like to consider ourselves as digital artisans.
Our practice expands from the philosophy of DIY (Do It Yourself) to the ideas of DOT (Do it Together) and DIWO (Do It with Others). We strongly believe creative process is part of the final art work.

To make this statement true we only use free software and creative commons license for our digital creations. Our artwork, theoretical work, writings and considerations are made possible thanks to connective intelligence behind the networks: as creators we elaborate our strategies taking advantage of common knowledge. The usage of free licenses and open technologies is our way to give it back. In trying to implement this production-consumption cycle we always share the codes, practices, strategies and documentation we produce in our daily activity.

Our goal is to make innovation working on the grey area that technology market leaves aside. We believe games are great tools and a language for creation: they connect people quickly and unchain temporary closeness zones. A temporal connection between people and culture that can have unpredictable results and give rise to lovely reflections over space and time.
