Untold Garden is an art and design studio exploring how technology can catalyse interpersonal relationships and enable alternative human experiences. By creating participatory systems, they urge the audience to question who controls our online presence and speculate on how we might interact in the future. Their experience-driven systems use cutting-edge machine learning technologies and scalable networking infrastructures to unearth new types of ecologies created in the ever-accelerating technological maelstrom. In their projects, they aim to go beyond the distinction between tools and objects and instead see each object as a potential platform to enable new ideas. Their works include physical installations, virtual sculptures, interactive performances, artificial natures and experimental social networks.
Untold, as in too many to be counted, the algorithmic inimitability of virtual worlds, and the near-endless esthetic capabilities of brain-replicating machines, rendering any solidity of aesthetics useless. Untold, as well as in not narrated or told by us, as our projects speak through those who experience them, each artwork unique to everyone who partakes in it.
Garden, as in the continuously evolving dance of mutual dependency between humans and natures - in the plural. Natures that are today both physical and virtual, through the numerous entities facilitating, mediating and obfuscating the human existence online, new digital ecosystems teeming with life, a nascent flora of human-made but non-human agencies.
We do both self-initiated and commissioned projects. We collaborate with engineers, scientists, artists, designers, architects, researchers and others. Our team consist of Max Čelar, Jakob Skote, Michael Brewster and Shreya Sharma. Our frequent collaborators include Lundahl & Seitl, Sebastian Dahlqvist, Paper Birds, Andrea Abbruzzese, Lovisa Karlsson and Petter Sjöstrand.
We're based in London and Stockholm and work across the globe.
