In 2012, the duo pasted their videos in over 10 spots including the Berlin Wall, Les Invalides, Cordy House, London, Paris, Belgrade, and even constructed a 5-meter telescopic electronic paint roller to create a two-story tall video painting in Bristol, over a 2 weeks period.

They explored the connection between video, architecture, and mark making, working with a custom software they wrote which tracks the position of the paint rollers and smear digital video over concrete surfaces with paint creating live video collages in actual time.
