Anna Mikkola’s work explores the ways that technology alters human subjectivity and probes the boundaries of the human, often materialising as videos and installations. Exploring how technology, nature and culture are entangled, her research considers the ways that interfaces and infrastructures format lived reality. Her work depicts narratives where different entities and points in time are woven together.

During the residency, Anna will develop new research for a project consisting of video and installation exploring the intersection of health and technology, tying together the planetary and human time.
