Since 2014 they have been working together in venues ranging from the Herekeke studio on Lama Mountain north of Taos, New Mexico to SIM house in Reykjavik, Iceland. In 2015 they were in residence at Wildacres in North Carolina. They recently completed a month’s residency and installation in a grain silo in Kura Studios, Japan. Their works include a chapbook Spilled Ink (poetry, suminagashi, photography, 2016), and an e-book of photography and poetry, Swimming in Reykjavik (The Moon Press, 2014). Publications in various on-line magazines include “Truck” and “Rogue Agent.” Their two previous geocaches are a metal haiku road sign series on Santa Fe’s westside and an art and poetry geocache installed summer 2017 at Santa Fe Skies RV Park off of Route 14. They share a studio in Santa Fe.
