“Feeling around for the organism”

Since 2016, one strand of Tuomas A. Laitinen’s artistic practice has been revolving around other-than-human minds, particularly through octopuses. Based on recorded cephalopod’s brain waves, Laitinen makes a new hybrid artwork that engages with octopus dreams across a single-channel short film, an artist’s book and a music soundtrack, to investigate topics of ecology, mythologies and symbiotic coexistence.
