Their shared interest gradually evolved from the medium of painting to concentrated work with a specific space. Since the beginning of their collaboration the guiding principle was the interest in the limits of images, in the possibilities of depiction and extension of visual codes beyond the scope of the image itself: in the area of context.

Today their interest is going towards creating site–specific complex environments, with a strong focus on the viewer’s position in them, all this with an emphasis on the character of the given space. The unifying element of their commissions is a certain moment of collapse, decay, destruction that affects the various socio-economic aspects of our society.
