Founded in Paris by Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen, both graduates of the Royal College of Art in computer related design, HeHe is an artist duo whose works aim to rethink the existing technological systems that surround us, to give them a new social and critical usage. With humour, HeHe reinvent our ongoing technological adventures; from the transformation of energy, emissions,
intoxication, rail infrastructures to electronically mediated systems of control. In developing poetic interventions about the limits and meaning of our technologically conditioned world, their practice reconciles the individual with the reality of their immediate urban environment. Their concept of reverse cultural engineering and the idea of aestheticising emission clouds in real time provides a theoretical framework for their installations on transportation and pollution.
Carbon Arts worked with HeHe in 2015 to curate their video works Nuage Vert and Toy Emissions into our Perceptive Power exhibition at the RMIT Design Hub. This was the first time that HeHe were exhibited in Australia.
