Coupling Series
2014 - 2015

In Coupling Series, the duo tease out the graphical representation of nature found within common garden system models in order to create a playful and ambiguous playground. From perfected depictions of colorful mud to 3d models of growing plants to an absurdly abstract instruction video, the installation comments on utopian ideas of DIY, manipulability, knowledge visualization, and a misplaced sense of control.
