In 1973, a blob-like substance that appeared to be a cross between a fungus and an animal surfaced in Texas, causing some to speculate whether it was a form of alien life. But in fact we were being introduced to plasmodial slime mould—a rare and resilient organism bolstered by a primitive intelligence that treks slowly around forests. Featuring stunning macroscopic time-lapse footage, Creeping Garden is a science-non-fiction odyssey that takes us through petri dishes, fungariums and mazes as a cadre of scientists, artists and designers collaborate with the mould to make musical compositions, project future population shifts and re-imagine the textures of our world. A provocative inquest into human curiosity and our creative interface with the world, Tim Grabham and Jasper Sharp’s film (featuring a score from the virtuosic Jim O’Rourke) is a vibrant cinematic cabinet of curiosities that will leave you giddy and delirious with wonder.
