Carsten Höller’s work is being followed incessantly by the idea of doubt as a result of allowing oneself to play a double role, of both the subject and object in order to achieve self-reflexivity. His interest seems to be partly determined by his own personal professional experience, where he is educated to doctorate level in phytopathology and agronomic entomology and by his exuberant energy to produce art. Moving from an over-specialised area of science to a very wide range of artistic mediums affected his artistic vision to such an extent that his participatory sculpture and installation is derived from devices and techniques originating in different areas of scientific research.
