«12 things you should say to your partner»

There are these two quiet, suited gentlemen. They annoy us. They seem to work, but we never see what they produce. They climb obstacles and crawl under fences. They challenge the world around themselves. And they create these amazing images. Under very strict time constraints. They call it deadline art, and they share their world at mentalpropell.com and here at UpOnWalls.

One day an email arrived from fellow artist Peter Hoelstad «I love your work and I have this great idea for a collaboration where we can explore the suited gentlemen in an inquiry into the nature of partnerships- Are you game?»

 Of course, they were game. Everything they do is about researching the nature of digital poetry, and this collaboration represented another great opportunity for artistic exploration and reserach. They met, explored the nature of partnerships and talked into the night for two days, in and around Södertälje in Sweden.

 The result is shown in our PopUp19 gallery in Stockholm (courtesy of Digital Strategi by Karlaplan), in a book and as art prints available here - just click the image link to enter our store.
