Adopting the model of a fictional corporation, the artist duo produce online artworks characterized by text-based animation composed in Adobe Flash set in all-caps Monaco typeface, highly synchronized to a musical score which is often jazz and bossa nova. Their work explores the dynamics of media, technology and power in the globalised world and experiments with an expressive model that goes beyond the barriers of digital animation, motion graphics, experimental video, imovies, and e-poetry.
