Qubo Gas have been taking on the task since 2000.
They are a collective of three people working individually and all together. They are striving to create visual experiences that stimulate the imaginary through automatic drawing and chromatic vibrations.

During exhibitions, they have implemented a mechanism that involves the spectator in their work, which was modified as they were walking through the exhibition room: without knowing, visitors were unwittingly promoted “spectactors”.
