Gwen and Luisa develop the characters and sceneries freely and without any goal; the astute artists just let their hands follow their creative minds. Gwen shapes faces out of clay, then Luisa invents a character for them.
They use simple materials such as cardboard, aluminium, and plaster, and create entire universes. There is for instance the story of Bert, the most unfortunate fisherman in the world. The poor guy loves to fish, but he never catches anything.
The entire process is analogue, a style which shows the impressive detail in their handicraft. Gwen's love for theatre and set design shines through in this example of Hamlet. You can almost feel his desolation!
