Public Studio analyzes the landscapes of the digital realm, and specifically of video games, to ask what has been given up and what needs to be recovered and regenerated. Public Studio is the collective art practice of filmmaker Elle Flanders and architect Tamira Sawatzky. Public Studio creates large-scale public art works, lens-based works, films and immersive installations. Grounded in the personal, social and political implications of landscape, Public Studio’s multidisciplinary practice engages themes of ecology and place. Since forming Public Studio, Sawatzky and Flanders have garnered critical attention, winning numerous public art commissions and awards. A new monograph about Public Studio's work called The Long Now has just been released.
