The art and design duo Wang & Söderströms work investigates our relationship with digital and climatic developments both in a tactile present and a clouded futurity.

In Royal Chambers, the duo explore and expand on the themes of invisible life and structures in the digital sphere, as well as in nature and their interconnectedness to the term home. Home as in where you live, home as in our bodies, home as in our data, home as in our planet. In the convergence between fiction and reality, this book casts light on invisible life and forces like microbes, technofossils, virus attacks, habitats, data harvesting and parasites.

The book gathers video works, interactive installations, sculptures from Wang & Söderströms solo exhibition Royal Chambers at inter.pblc (Copenhagen, November 2022), as well as essays from five contributing writers. It will include a digital layer, where selected content will start to move or appear three-dimensionally through AR (augmented reality).
