Carsten Höller disturbs his viewers’ assumptions with installations or interactive sculptures that deliberately but often playfully induce doubts and confusion.



 Formerly a scientist (in evolutionary ecology and olfactory communication in insects), Höller uses the audience as subjects of perceptual and psychological experimentation. Quasi-scientifically, his work often sets out to study a particular concept. In the past, Höller has made series devoted to the ideas of security, children, love, hallucinations, happiness, animals, games, doubt/certainty, and a group of sculpture/vehicles that looked at different modes of travel.
