Inflected objects

Jenna Sutela (1983, Finland) currently lives and works in Berlin. Her installations, text and sound performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments. Recently, she has been researching and working with Physarum polycephalum, or the “many-headed” slime mold: an ancient, decentralized, autonomous organism that processes data without a nervous system, operating via communities of coordinated nuclei that demonstrate advanced spatial intelligence. Sutela’s project called ‘Orgs’ juxtaposes the organism with organizational charts. Her previous work has been presented at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo and South London Gallery and writing published by Fiktion, Harvard Design Magazine and Sternberg Press.
