Event details

In the talk “Orgs”, artist Jenna Sutela will share some of her ongoing investigation into biological and computational systems. Sutela is intrigued by the possibility that decentralist eco-centric technology might take over, reclaiming its pre-human domination. The talk is co-hosted by AMT and Critical Practices research groups at Winchester School of Art.

Jenna Sutela works with words, sounds, and other living materials. Her installations and performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology. Based between Berlin and Helsinki, Sutela’s artwork has been presented at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Serpentine Marathon in London, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, and The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. Last year, she edited Orgs: From Slime Mold to Silicon Valley and Beyond (Garret Publications 2017), an experimental survey of decentralized organisms and organizations, expanding on her collaboration with Physarum polycephalum, the single-celled yet “many-headed” slime mold.
