You sense the artist’s enjoyment of words, images and ideas that pull you both one way and the other, that have an in-built duality. Rules constrain but also liberate. Algorithms are ugly but also beautiful. Hirst enjoys playing with the tension between restriction and freedom, between the predetermined and the random, the deliberate and the accidental, the similar and the different, front and back, inside and outside, the artless and the artful, between what is taken away and what is left behind. You might say that everything here is neither one thing nor the other.
