The title of the work relates to a cataloguing system the artists developed for their work. Combining a fine arts background with commercial design practice, they collaborated for more than ten years, showing in a number of galleries and festivals in New Zealand and overseas.
Hannah Beehre gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Canterbury in 2000, where Aaron Beehre has lectured in design since 2004. The pair also played together in acclaimed band Pine.
