Guggenheim
jenna sutela

Sutela’s works feature words, computer-generated aural and visual stimuli, and living organisms.

Born in 1983, Sutela is interested in experimenting with new technologies and artificial intelligence. In collaboration with engineer Damien Henry (Google Arts) and artist Memo Akten, she has taken part in Somerset House Studios + Google Arts & Culture, n-Dimensions, in London. That residency was the origin of the piece you see in the exhibition.

In May 2018 she presented Extremophile at the CLICK Festival of Contemporary Art, Sciences and Technology in Copenhagen. This performance suggests the possibility of the transmission of life between planets by means of a bacteria from fermented foodstuffs.
