In discussions about current global uncertainty the idea of immortality and utopia surfaced as a central subjects of investigation. We sought to actively claim the the space of utopia to propose a resistant view of the world.

Though we may have failed at finding immortality, in our discussions success was deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged, and risk considered a viable position. In line with 3ajeeb!, our ideas and outcomes (objects, video, prints, installation) put forth a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused.
