London based Studio Above&Below was founded by artists Perry-James Sugden and Daria Jelonek after graduating from the Royal College of Art. The duo combines immersive art installations, computational design and research based storytelling in order to create new mindsets for possible and probable futures, visual languages and interactions with emerging technologies.
Their leading research examines the correlation between the environment and technology, exploring if nature, culture and technology can live in sync, what sustainable (digital) consumption means and how technology can give our environment a voice to express itself.
Throughout the 2020-2021 BOM fellowship they will deepen their knowledge into the deployment of pollution real time data into Mixed Reality environments, such as headset based experiences using Magic Leap and Unity and phone based experiences for iOS and Android, enabling the environment to express itself. The duo will support the BOM community by sharing knowledge, skills and thoughts about digital media for future living.
