Currently based in Milan (Italy), we work for cultural institutions, magazines and commercial clients on projects that involve text editing & copywriting – in English, Italian and French – together with photo, video & websites.

Combining a knowledge of art & design history with a critical and hands-on approach, we develop narratives that focus on experimentation, sustainability and cross-cultural pollination.

Parallel to commissioned works we also develop our own research projects under the pseudonym of studio d-o-t-s.
