Tentacle Tongue (2019) is part of Tuomas A. Laitinen’s research on more-than-human minds. The conductors of this work are cephalopods, and through this class of species, Laitinen examines questions of biodiversity and radical difference. The work consists of posters that the viewers can activate with an Augmented Reality (AR) app, on their mobile devices. This act of scanning will unfold as an intimate audiovisual work that dives into imaging technologies and the production of knowledge in the age of hyper-capitalism and climate crises.

Tentacle Tongue has been commissioned by Screen City Biennial and will be premiered during the upcoming edition Ecologies - lost, found and continued.
