THE ARTISTS

Zahara is a multidisciplinary force - she has worked as a journalist, visual artist, musician, designer, creative thinker, producer and art director. She has been in bands since her teens. She is also a collage artist (hand cut paper / video) under the alter ego Availability Uncertain; and with a specific interest in perception she is a strong believer in its variability and the evocative power of visual narratives. Zahara has studied Sociology, holds a degree in Philosophy and diplomas in several holistic approaches to the mind-body connection, including Gestalt.

Ben is a deconstructor and inventor, musician and music technologist with background in audio visual production, art direction and performance arts. Ben has studies in Mime and in Music Technology and has an special interest in forming new visions of music in the digital landscape, specially through a visual perspective, challenging technologies beyond the borders of what is considered to be feasible.
