‘I don’t want to exhibit something to someone, but rather the reverse: to exhibit someone to something.’ Pierre Huyghe

 

Although Huyghe intentionally alters the sites in which he works, events and growth are often encouraged to occur without his control. Uumwelt is therefore changed irrevocably and unpredictably over the course of the time in which it exists.

 

For his exhibition at the Serpentine, Huyghe began by selecting a set of images and descriptions and gave them to an individual. As this person recreated these images in their mind, their brain activity was captured by an fMRI scanner, and the data produced was given to a deep neural network, which attempted to reconstruct them, collaging together elements from its own bank of images.
