Jenna Sutela @ The White Building, Dec 1

30 November 2016

Jenna Sutela will be reading from her forthcoming publication Orgs: From Slime Mold to Silicon Valley at London’s The White Building (SPACE Art + Technology) on December 1. 

“..But their circuits are self-growing and self-repairing, producing systems tolerant to interruptions or failure..”

The event is #11 in the OpenPROCESS series that provides a platform for process-led practices, and will take the form of a “performative, sonic transcription”. The reading will also feature Clara Jo, Emily Jones and Ming Lin.

The publication focuses on “decentralized organisms and organizations” and expands on Sutela’s interest in the simultaneous, multiple voices that related to a neo-biological future of technology. The Helsinki-based artist works across installation, sound performance and writing to “identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology.”

The event promises an afternoon of readings, presentations and custom cocktails. Snowe will read a series of short texts that surround and approach and her play. Yuile will make a short presentation relating to the research she has conducted throughout the residency. Special Tears will read together in an attempt to contact a character who can dream with us but cannot dream for us.

Megan Snowe is taking part in the next I Had This Feeling reading group at London’s Res. on September 22.

The programme is focused on emotion and affect theory, the emotional economy, and the sensual impacts of language. They will discuss ‘The Managed Heart: Commercialization of Human Feeling’ by Arlie Russell Hochschild, who coined the term ’emotional labor’, on their next meeting.
