Session: Creative Companionship
Our talk is about Creative Companionship. We live and work together—our lives are intertwined, and through that we have learned to be completely truthful and honest with one another regardless of whether it is in intimacy or professionalism. Our relationship began as a personal project which we named Complements, exploring the universal strangeness of love. After unexpected success, we made the decision to start a studio together which faces the trials and tribulations of never being able to emotionally detach.
