We have two modes of practice:
Modernist, prescriptive, offline
We work with clients who want to understand how global developments affect their fields of interest, as well as the broader implications their ideas and policies may have on international affairs.
Post-modernist, descriptive, online
We produce work that attempts to serve as an architecture of networked and hyper-emergent international affairs. Here we are trying to supplant old answers with new questions.
The interplay between the two allows us to monetise our curiosities to explore further curiosities.
