This volume documents Philippe Parreno's (born 1964) transformation of the Gropius Bau into a gigantic automaton driven by a bio-reactor. Yeast cultures multiply and set architecture, light, sounds and images in motion. Connected to computers, these micro-organisms develop a memory that uses algorithms to orchestrate events for the exhibition.
