Burton Nitta founded by Anglo-Japanese duo, Michael Burton and Michiko Nitta, is a trans-disciplinary collaborative art practice. Works navigate futures and meta-futures informed by technological and scientific developments that manifest in evolutionary changes to us and our worlds. Visions, objects, films and experiences explore possible pathways whereby human values, dreams and desires steer the direction of our actions. At the heart of our work is an interrogation of the human animal and an opportunity to taste alternative worlds and humanness.
Previous works such as Algaculture, The Algae Opera, Republic of Salivation and Instruments of the Afterlife are published and exhibited internationally from MoMA, New York to the V&A Museum, London.
Within the xLab we create the Post Natural Memory Park where you will find a range of devices and plants that are transformed by technology and changing environments as a multi-sensory glimpse into the future.
