The Creeping Garden is a multi award winning feature length creative documentary exploring the work of fringe scientists, mycologists and artists, and their relationship with the extraordinary plasmodial slime mould. 

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 also travels out into the wild, hunting for the organisms in their natural habitat.  

Co-directed by artist film-maker Tim Grabham and writer and film curator Jasper Sharp,with a soundtrack composed by celebrated musician and producer Jim O'Rourke, this is real life science fiction movie exploring a world creeping right beneath our feet, where time and space are magnified and intelligence redefined.
