Eeva-Liisa Puhakka works in mediums that include kinetic sculptures, video, installations (also sound), bio art, and olfactory art. Puhakka was a founding member of Scent Club Berlin, a collective of artists, designers, and scientists working in and between scents and smells and these fields of practice. A specific focus in her work in the last years has been rural depopulation, recycling old machinery, and making bioplastics. A big theme in her work is the investigation of human and animal dependence. She has also been researching a religious sect and its child preachers and the smell of death and fear.
Unfortunately, Eeva's participation was cut short due to Covid-19, but her stay at the residency initiated her work with bioplastics.
