The New York-based collective DIS (Est. 2010 ); made up of Lauren Boyle, Solomon Chase, Marco Roso, and David Toro, works across a wide range of media. In 2018, the collective transitioned platforms from  an online magazine,​ ​dismagazine.com​, to a video streaming edutainment platform,​ ​dis.art​, narrowing  in on the future of education as entertainment.
