Pierre Huyghe is best known for creating complex immersive ecosystems, and for this exhibition he has transformed the Serpentine Gallery into a environment housing different forms of cognition: emerging intelligence, biological reproduction and instinctual behaviours.
Large screens present images which began in a human mind. A person's brain activity was captured at the exact moment they imagined a specific situation. Each image is then shown in a endless process of reconstruction, continually modified by external factors such as light, temperature and humidity levels -- even the presence of insects and the gaze of visitors.
The central gallery has also been transformed into an incubator for live flies that will migrate towards the centre of the dome — so if you've got a phobia of flies then you might want to give it a miss!
