Sputniko! is an artist/designer who uses design to explore technology’s impact on everyday life–and to imagine alternative futures. Her practice includes creating music and film about objects she has designed, which she posts on social networks and online video platforms to encourage discussions outside traditional art/academic spheres. Sputniko! has presented her film and installation works at exhibitions such as Talk to Me (MoMA, New York, 2011) and Bunny Smash (Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, 2013). She has joined MIT Media Lab as an assistant professor from 2013 to start the Design Fictions Group.
