The Latvian pavilion installation focuses on the contradictory nature of our relationship with technology

Made of an uncanny web of black pipes coming from an unknown source, the enormous apparatus first appears to be a foreign organism parasitizing on space that used to belong to humans. The installation invites visitors to change their perspective and discover an amusing neighbour in this seemingly threatening intruder — one that reacts to our presence and even addresses us in an incomprehensible yet comforting language of its own.
