Digital technologies have caused a seismic change to our position as documentary makers and have given us endless possibilities in narrative formats. We started experimenting with more layered forms of storytelling fusing the hyperrealism of documentary with the more abstract and conceptual qualities within the visual arts. This approach gives us the space to work in a more abstract way, connecting different narrative forms and disciplines. It is precisely at this position that we feel comfortable and are able to tap into deeper layers, more reflective, looking at larger movements and developments in today’s world. The accessibility of large quantities of image, sound and other sources play an important role in our work. The non-linearity, the simultaneous, is key to several of our projects.
