A real life science fiction movie exploring a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined.
The Creeping Garden is a feature length creative documentary exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, from the UK to Japan, and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould.
With an original soundtrack composed by celebrated musician Jim O'Rourke (Sonic Youth, Werner Herzog's 'Grizzly Man') this is a unique exploration into a hitherto untapped subject matter, observing and immersing the audience into the worlds of the observers and the observed.
The 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 fiction.
But as well as exploring the slime mould in the lab, the film will also travel out into the wild, hunting for the organisms in their natural habitat with dedicated amateurs and experts alike.
Co-directed by artist film-maker Tim Grabham and writer and film curator Jasper Sharp, the film follows in the unconventional footsteps of Grabham's previous feature 'KanZeOn' and Sharps fascination with the extended world of Mycology.
