A world beneath your feet where time and space are magnified and intelligence is redefined. – The Creeping Garden
*For Milieux Members*
Join the Concordia Ethnography Lab and the Milieux Speculative Life BioLab for a special screening of Tim Grabham and Jasper Sharp’s creative documentary exploring “the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould.”
The Creeping Garden (UK, 2014) is a multi-award winning feature-length creative documentary exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould.
Slime mould is being used to explore biological-inspired design, emergence theory, unconventional computing and robot controllers, much of which borders on the world of science ction. In addition to exploring the slime mould in the lab, the lm travels out into the wild, hunting for the organisms in their natural habitat.
Co-directed by the artist and film-maker Tim Grabham (KanZeOn) and author and film critic Jasper Sharp, with an original soundtrack composed by celebrated musician and producer Jim O’Rourke (Sonic Youth, Grizzly Man), The Creeping Garden is a unique exploration into a hitherto untapped subject matter, immersing the viewer within the worlds of the observers and the observed.
