"Vector Defenders is an experimental
project based on the script written by us. This history
relates the war, in a remote galaxy, between the image and

site is thought as a trilogy production that narrates the
story in interactive and audiovisual way; as a videogame
or interactive film. The user introduce himself into a fictitious
world, feeling as he is the main caracter of this history."

"Inflat-o-scape is an experimental,
multi-faceted 'view' of an urban information zone: a merging
of architectural structures, information technologies and
inflatable forms. Conceptual emphasis is on emerging and
extinct technologies, creating a historically-ambivalent
interface that examines the idea of a 'progressive' landscape.
Inflat-o-scape is a fabricated 'space', merging and erasing

"Invisible Maps is a web-based interactive
work which explores threads of narrative: how the choices
we make when traveling are akin to letters, words and sentences.
With every gesture we write novels; every stroll fills volumes
of encyclopedia. Invisible Maps examines those unknowable

with the smell of electricity."

"The T U R N S website collects and
shares personal stories and maps of life turning points.
Stories are represented on the site as pebble-like shapes
that can be opened, then returned to the narrative pool;
lifemaps are represented as shards of blue glass which open
as visual expressions. Visitors to "T U R N S can browse
stories according to twelve categories, such as education,
relationships, health, trauma family, immigration, or contribute
their own narratives. In the TOPICS section of the website,
users can reorganize stories through different filters such
as gender, time, age. Participants may also browse or contribute
a "life map" visual representing a life turn.
Seen through relational filters, lenses, and links, one's
story is understood as part of social memory. The site is
also a reflection on the ways new media are influencing
and changing the notions of the individual in a social context."
