LE CHATEAU DE TURING, PIERRE HUYGHE, FRENCH PAVILION – VENICE BIENNALE

2001

ARTER produced Le château de Turing by Pierre Huyghe, for the French Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.

What characterizes the Turing machine is, first of all, its universality. Through it, the borders between the cognitive modes of man, animal, and machine are abolished. What Pierre Huyghe presents contains the three modalities of information processing: human, living, and artificial. The spectator himself is a calculating being, conducting his own investigation under the retroactive control of the computer HAL which directs the computation process, resulting in the generation and exhibition of visual works of art.
