Ilana is an artist and Rachael is a philosopher. They have been working together, experimenting with new ways of doing research and making art, since meeting at the Star and Shadow Cinema 2014(ish).
Their collaboration was forged during shared practical struggles around chasing money to do cool things without getting involved in bad stuff. Practical turned to questioning, and so began the idea of this project and the hope to find answers both to the questions and the money.
