Welcome to the website about the collaborations of Daniela Kostova and Olivia Robinson.

We share a common interest in performance, custom-made technology and work in public spaces. Utilizing skills from our traditional and electronic arts backgrounds, our works explore the space between the known and common, and the invisible and unspoken. Surveillance technologies, wearable systems and human generated electricity are some of our tools. Using art as a medium for building relationships, revealing the invisible and synthesizing connections, our works take place on the streets, initiate interaction with strangers, and culminate in a final form of installation including
video, photography and sculptural artifacts from performances.
