Bruno Martelli Graduated from Central Saint Martins with a first class degree in graphic art before setting up a multimedia platform for interactive design. He has since worked with artist John Latham, muf architects and co-curated Wired Worlds a computer games exhibition at the National Media Museum, Bradford. He is a recipient of a Wingate Scholarship through which he continues his research into technologies to abstract the human body, it’s movement, and it’s senses.

Ruth Gibson Graduated from University of Kent Canterbury with a BA (Hons) in Performing Arts. She studied with the Marcel Marceau Group whilst on a scholarship at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti USA. She continued her education at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam. Nominated for a Paul Hamlyn Award for Visual Art in 2000, she has worked with many artists including Sandra Fisher, Gary Rowe, Leonard McComb RA and Gaby Agis.

Based in London, the artists work together and often as igloo with international artists, including John McCormick and Adam Nash. Their practice is multifaceted ranging through installation, intervention, virtualisation, film and performance drawing on the multiple layers of reality and unreality. Much of their work is in recreating environments and systems where coding joins hands with choreographies of the body. Their core concept is the intersection between technology and the human spirit, where our ambivalence to technology is explored with originality, humour and intellect.
