Comprising of Korean artist Young-Hae Chang, and American poet Marc Voge, these artists employ the web animation tool, Flash, to tell syncopated, rhythmically arranged and structurally scrambled narratives either online, or often across multiple screens.

Setting the animated texts to their own jazzy musical compositions, the duo create fast-paced text movies in which words appear in rapid succession either in the web browser window, or filling the projected screen. Employing the most simple of web based technologies, the black text on white background in the classic web specific Monaco font, the texts are consistently very human, with a dry paranoid humour interlinking the diverse and fantastical narratives. With subjects ranging from cunninglingus in North Korea, to urban alienation and the futility of art, to the insignificance of human life.
