Irwin / Robinson

James Irwin and Will Robinson met on the Computational Studio Arts MFA at Goldsmiths in 2009. Their first collaborative projects Nine and One were exhibited at 10, Goth on Bus, London in May that year. They were invited to show Nine at The Middle of Nowhere: Objects and Actions in the Abyss, at the Departure Gallery in March 2010.

Later in 2010 they set up a studio together, where they continue to work closely on individual and collaborative projects. Their collaborations can be broadly grouped under the title Systems of Understanding.
