Untold Garden is an experiential art and design studio directed by Max Čelar and Jakob Skote. We explore new tools for participatory design and art through immersive technologies.
Our work sits on the intersection of collaborative processes and design tools, virtual sculptures and interactive performances, artificial ecologies and organic social networks. Through experimental use of novel technologies our work weaves new forms of social interactions, enabling new relations between humans, as well as at some point non-humans.
We avoid the distinction between tool and object, and see each project as a potential platform enabling new ideas. Technology is no more and no less than the human extension of nature. We believe that the technological tools we use in our daily life should reflect this.
We do both self-initiated and commissioned projects. We collaborate with engineers, scientists, artists, designers, architects, researchers and others. Our frequent collaborators include Lundahl & Seitl, Sebastian Dahlqvist, Paper Birds and Andrea Abbruzzese.
We're based in London and Stockholm and work across the globe.
