Here is a little bit of fun animation Carnal Enforce made recently, based on a concept by Dismantle Him.

And here is some work Transfer Killer and Dismantle Him did together at the beginning of this century.
Dismantle Him and Transfer Killer playing nicely together
- Acrostic poem Virginia Woolf by Dismantle Him (Mapless in Underland 2004), responding to work made by Transfer Killer for If U Were Mine exhibition, 2003
Veiled in muslin,
Intellect like a steel ribbon.
Reaching up for new words, you fought the weight of your father;
Grappling with the old rigour, energy, dominance,
Insanity. You pored over the Odyssey as a girl,
Never suspecting the birds would later sing to you in Greek.
‘I meant to write about death, only life came breaking in
Was it death, or life, dragged you under?
Ouse was the name of your last river,
Ophelia’s your grand gesture:
Lying white as lilies on the bottom,
Failing, like sunlight over empires.
