They produced such public art projects as the time capsule "Cápsula de Tiempo Córdoba" for Expo'92 in Sevilla, Spain and the itinerant anti-copyright communications system "Copiacabana" that traveled by river between Spain and Portugal in 1995. Together, they also formed S.O.S. Int'l, a publishing collective that treats publications and the printed word as public space.
