M@ is chronically busy with the question “What is what we’re doing, doing?”.
He collaborates with inspiring artists, in diverse contexts, to interrogate form.
These projects articulate how we embody systems – social, cultural, political, or technological – and in turn how these systems embody us by forming communities and informing identities.
That we may get better at living together.
