The duo Marion Pinaffo (born in 1987, FR) and Raphaël Pluvinage (born in 1986, FR) have worked together since 2015.

For the last four years, they have been observing, manipulating and experimenting with the technologies that surround us. Guided by curiosity and intuition, they analyze the physical systems and forms that operate in the background of the virtual world and explore the interactions that can take place between the mathematical logic of automata and human creative sensibility.

Their graphic sense, proclivity for intuitive uses and devotion for economic systems lead them to create an exceptional physical reality that can nonetheless be shared by all. They conceptualize and create objects, systems and simple procedures for visualizing complex, concealed realities. Their work is wholly unprecedented; they invent its material forms one by one, as fields of inquiry arise and develop.

Their work had been exhibited internationally: Gaité Lyrique (FR), Centre Pompidou (FR), Mad Paris (FR), Madd Bordeaux (FR), Design Museum Holon (IL), Triennale di Milano (IT), Gent Design Museum (BE), MUDAC (FR) and is part of the National Centre for the Plastic Arts collection (CNAP).
