Last week the New Museum opened the first New York survey of works by German artist, Carsten Höller. Ongoing until early next year, the entire exhibition is an immersive, interactive installation. Twenty years in the making, Höller has created an artistic vision that is equal parts a scientific exploration of architecture and structural engineering and a real-life lab. Höller’s pieces are designed to push the limits of human sensorial perception and logic through carefully executed participatory experiences. Prior to entering the show we were asked to read and sign a waiver of liability, which is very unusual for any kind of exhibition at a museum, but definitely a good sign.
