An emerging collective that integrates architecture, art, and new media through a transdisciplinary approach lens. 

Our projects explore the anthropology, ontology, and human experience of space—examining its transformation by urban functions and technological processes. We engage in artistic and curatorial endeavors that focus on researching, documenting, archiving, and contextualizing memory spaces. Our work highlights the untold stories of overlooked communities and the subtle actions of everyday life through digital art experiences.

We strive to enrich our network by collaborating with diverse artists, researchers, and curators.
