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, Mixed Realities experiences (XR), and data in order to grow potential connections between humans, machines and the environment – working towards preferred future interactions with our surroundings.

Believing in research-based art, Studio Above&Below often works with science, technology, communities, and ecologies to push the boundaries of digital media for future living. Established in 2018, over the last few years the duo has created ground breaking large-scale public artworks using advanced technologies with live data inputs in order to make invisible phenomena visible and give our environment a voice to express itself.

Their work has been exhibited 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.

Their work has been featured in magazines including the New York Times, ART Magazin, MAXON, Arte and It’s Nice That.
