Octopuses are actually space aliens whose frozen eggs first came to Earth aboard an icy meteor by Jo Pester

Octopuses are actually space aliens whose frozen eggs first came to Earth aboard an icy meteor by Jo Pester

‘Octopuses are actually space aliens whose frozen eggs first came to Earth aboard an icy meteor’ is filmed using a number of cameras attached across the artist’s body as an attempt to enact a technologically mediated sense of embodiment inspired by the octopus. This filming approach stems from the intrinsically embodied nature of octopuses whose ‘brains’ are spread throughout their bodies, and whose various limbs can act without instruction from a centralised nervous system based on feedback from their environment.
