Something primitive animated the darkness of the Tate Modern’s recently opened Tanks. Through the interplay of luminous form and motion, ambiguity in visual perception is explored and manipulated in an unfolding interactive experience.
Artist Ruairi Glynn exhibited 'Fearful Symmetry' at the Tate Modern on the 21st and 22nd August 2012. His latest and most ambitious interactive installation to date has been developed through a collaboration with the Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, Middlesex University Design Engineering and Kings College's Department of Robotics. This exhibition follows exhibitions last year at the Centre Pompidou, Paris and the National Art Museum of China, Beijing.
These scans capture the shadows cast across the floor and walls of the refurbished tanks as Glynn’s robotic puppet glows and dances with members of the audience. ‘Fearful Symmetry' inhabited the darkness of the Tanks at Tate Modern as part of its Undercurrent Programme.
