About the Speakers
Rachel Sussman is a contemporary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. For nearly a decade she has researched, worked with biologists, and traveled all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. This work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science, has an innate environmentalism, and is underscored by an existential incursion into deep time. Her first book, The Oldest Living Things in the World, reached shelves in April 2014, with forewords by Carl Zimmer and Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Her latest project is a curatorial experiment on the relationship between design and violence.
