We Are Not Alone is a futuristic message from Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi building’s architect, for future generations, like a time capsule of intent. One is invited to walk throughout the Louvre Abu Dhabi and its surroundings, to understand history, its impact and meaning in a post-human galaxy, while questioning free will, human nature and destiny.
Significantly, humans have a unique ability for abstract thinking paired with a unique affinity for the past, giving rise to museums that capture history and preserve it. We reflect as we look into the future: building on the work of our ancestors, where is our species headed? After all, lived reality is always a construction of the imagination.
Interpreted by Hussain Al Jassmi, Willem Dafoe, Zhou Dongyu, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nina
Kraviz, Wim Wenders & Jean Nouvel, the audio walk concludes with an M.I.T. algorithm defining the names of future exoplanets.
