Studio Above&Below is a London-based art and technology practice founded by Daria Jelonek (GER) and Perry-James Sugden (UK) after graduating from the Royal College of Art. Their work combines digital art, data and generative systems in order to draw together unseen connections between humans, machines and the environment.
Believing in research-based art, Studio Above&Below often works with scientists, technologists and communities to push the boundaries of digital media for future living. Over the last years the duo has created groundbreaking artworks using immersive technologies such as Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality in order to make the invisible visible and to give our environment a voice to express itself.
Their work has been shown internationally at institutions and festivals including the RA, Tate Late, V&A London, Nottingham Contemporary, Photophore during the Venice Biennale, HeK Basel, NRW Forum, Today Art Museum, WRO Biennale, WIRED Japan, and Sonar+D. Previous prizes and fundings include Broadway’s NEAR NOW fellowship, Lumen Prize (shortlisted), Bloomberg Bursary, the Battersea Sculpture Prize, Factory Berlin x Sonar+D Artist in Residency and the S+T+Arts x Nesta Italia City of the Future prize.
