Fuzzy Earth is a research-based creative practice formed by Tekla Gedeon (1993/HU) and Sebastian Gschanes (1989/A). We operate at the intersection of architecture, design, art, agriculture, horticulture, and technology, while our mediums go beyond these categories. Fuzzy Earth builds alternative worlds and reveals unseen layers of entanglements across species in the era of climate crises to inspire a more inclusive and resilient future. We create spaces, objects, and events that explore our relationship with nature and technology. Through the application of speculative design methodologies, our work challenges the role of ecological environments, industrial landscapes, and botanical institutions
NOT QUITE CALIFORNIA WONDER(2020 -)
UNFORTUNATE YET BRAVE SPECIES(2022-2023)
Our projects infiltrate unexpected spaces such as market halls, sandy beaches, domestic spaces, and gardens. Our animation film about generational guardianship, the Extended Forest was exhibited at the Somerset House part of the London Design Biennale: Design in an Age of Crisis (UK, 2021), at the Espronceda Institute of Art & Culture in Barcelona in the framework of the Sustainable views show (ES, 2021) and at Aarhus School of Architecture part of The School in Real-Time lecture series (DK, 2021). Our research-based project, titled Not Quite California Wonder was displayed at Igor Metropol (HU, 2020), at the Budapest Design Week (HU, 2020), at the Off-Biennale (HU, 2021) part of the Menü Imaginare exhibition, at PLACCC art festival (HU, 2021) in Budapest, and at A4 part of the White Night festival in Bratislava (SK, 2022). Among others, we launched a new public sculpture, called Shimmer, at Gárdonyi square, Budapest (HU, 2021).
Tekla and Sebastian collaborate with others. We cultivate invisible systems of togetherness, hope, kinship, care, alliances, and community.
