Our work as media artists evaluates how conventions of viewing become shorthand for experience, often elliding and misrepresenting reality. To this end, we build active systems for art creation and viewing. In our work, technology serves as a mediator between the human and the world, and as an active force which not only shapes its material but reframes the entire project of what we choose to see.
In May 2014 Kevin made the first digital art NFTs making our work the first to be recorded on blockchains. These earliest works set the metadata standard that is still largely used today.
Our other digital and media artworks are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Milwaukee Art Museum and other institutions and collections in the U.S. and around the world.
