Based in Berlin, Finnish artist Jenna Sutela’s installations, texts, and performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology.
Most recently, the artist has been exploring exceedingly complex
biological and computational systems, ultimately unknowable and in a
constant state of becoming.
In early 2018, Sutela set about exploring this further after joining n-Dimensions, Google Arts & Culture’s artist-in-residence program at
Somerset House Studios. The opportunity led her to collaborate with fellow artist Memo Akten and work with engineers at Google Arts & Culture in Paris to investigate whether computers could channel spirits instead of algorithms.
