Site info

The site was launched on July 25th, 2002 and was updated for the last time on July 27th, 2014. It works fine in the current versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, plus Netscape Communicator 4.0+, America Online 5.0+ and Opera 5.0+ (things look a little funky in iCab, but the layers work). In any case, you'll need the Quicktime plugin to view the videos of our work. Let us know if you come across any bugs.

The site was built in good old HTML using Macromedia (now Adobe) Dreamweaver and Bare Bones BBEdit. The images were created using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and ImageReady. Everything was done on Apple Macintosh computers.

The photography is by Susan Barber, Tim Barber, David Bashaw, Jesse Champlin, Gemma Corsano, Kate Kittredge, Chris Mueller, Tom Mylroie, Serifcan Özcan, Scott Stowell, Ryan Thacker and John Waldie. Thanks to Tsia Carson, Emily Cohen, Carmen Morais and Alice Twemlow for their help and advice.

Special thanks to Keiran Hebden (otherwise known as Four Tet) for giving us permission to use his track "Twenty Three" on our reel.
