Tatlo is a collaboration between Sara Jimenez and Jade Yumang. The two met in New York City and started to make work together in 2012.

Sara was born in the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Attawandaron (Neutral), and Wendat peoples of London, Ontario and raised in Bethesda, MD. She received her BA in Semiotics and Communication Theory from the University of Toronto with departmental honors in 2008 and an MFA at Parsons School of Design in 2013. She is a part-time faculty at Parsons School of Design.

Jade was born in Quezon City, Philippines, grew up in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, immigrated Vancouver, British Columbia, which is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the ʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. He received his BFA Honours in University of British Columbia as the top graduate in 2008 and an MFA with Departmental Honors at Parsons School of Design in 2012. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fiber and Material Studies in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Tatlo is concerned with how the body adapts or fails to certain strict criteria through performance endurance, social interventions, and sculpture. Often times these are framed through cultural expectations, personal experiences, systems of restraints, and bodily fatigue.
