Research is part of our process of developing work, all projects proceed as a process of enquiry. We are interested in asking questions about how we imagine futures, how we relate to history and the environment and how we create agency for citizens. We have created exhibitions, conferences and publications for: Tate Britain, the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Centre for Contemporary Arts in the Natural World (CCANW), the National Portrait Gallery, The Architecture Foundation and Bridgwater Arts Centre.
