We are a small group of artists who collaborate in different constellations to make live art & performance, street interventions & traveling art objects, often using digital media as a mode of making and participation. We have been producing this life-art mix of rural & experimental events with associate artists & local residents, visitors and remote participants from our Devon base since 2001. Find out more about our group ethos and how we arrived here…

Ideas around connection, identity and belonging often recur through working closely with people in a responsive way.
