Carsten Höller: Experience
Text by Daniel Birnbaum, Lynne Cooke, Massimiliano Gioni, Jessica Morgan and Hans Ulrich Obrist
About This Book
Carsten Höller has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and fun house. He explores important themes such as architecture, childhood, love, happiness, hallucination, and the future. Trained as a scientist, his work often takes the form of experiments designed to test the limits of human sensorial experience through carefully controlled situations.
