Fairies will fly, fireflies will mate and disco ball unicorns will dance and play in this queer wonderland! Watch an indoor solarium transform, in real-time, into an animated magical symphony of colour and sound featuring critters of the queerest kind.
This subversive garden is a safe haven from the capitalistic, narcissistic world in which we live. An imaginary space living that transcends colonialism, heteropatriarchy, and cisnormativity.
How It’s Made: Video is projected onto a wall of plants animating the plants and revealing creatures, animals and insects that exist within.

Fairy Garden Wonderland lyrics by David Bateman
Fairies will fly, fireflies will mate
disco balled unicorns make the unicorn dates
Silver horned cone-like antlers aboundIdyllic quadrilles
dance round and round
Lavender cowslips, eglantine – vulvic design
Nature rhymes everything with slips of queer signs
In and out up and down
Seeding the ground
Finding and losing
the soft mighty sound of
Foursomes, threesomes and twosomes and more
Adam’s Steve Lilith’s Eve cavort upon leafy floors
Peaseblosooms, clover, musk roses, and vines
Entangled with honeysuckles more than divine
Lay grace on this garden freed from bad air
I durst not part my lips for that deafening share
Of a queer world encountering strife from beyond
Dance in queer gardens and rainbows will come
