Risk Landscape

Agnieszka Kurant (b. 1987, Łódź), whose works explore contemporary phenomena such as artificial intelligence and the relationship between the digital and biological worlds, has been invited to produce a new installation for the Henry J. and Erna D. Leir Pavilion. The exhibition gathers a series of new and existing works, such as Alien Internet (2023), a piece composed of ferrofluid – a black inorganic substance invented by NASA in 1963 – suspended in an electromagnetic field, whose shape changes in response to data collected by digital technologies on the migration and interactions of animals in the world.
