Leah and Pierluigi met while finishing their Fine Arts degrees at Concordia University. They have been traveling and collaborating on various projects ever since and created in 1999.

Their work is an attempt to transform technology into a sensual experience. Their images have a touch of the mystical and symbolic yet at the same time make us aware of the technological process. Pleasure, identity and transformation are also inherent in their work. Liquids are often employed as a medium because of their fluid properties and relationship to the unconscious.
