Ruairi Glynn at Tate Tanks

Recently I’ve been helping out my friend and colleague Ruairi Glynn with his latest installation¬†Fearful Symmetry¬†at the Tate Tanks, as part of the Undercurrent programme. Building upon themes from his earlier projects Performative Ecologies (the piece that got me into this world in the first place) and Motive Colliques, he has built the world’s largest delta robot, with the express intention of investigating our perception of movement.

The piece is currently residing in a warehouse somewhere in the east of London, but will be open to the public in the Tate Tanks between 21-22 August 2012. There’s a private view in the evening of the 22nd – if you’d like to come along, please do drop me an email!

NB – I’ll be updating this page as the project develops with more photos, videos, press clippings, etc.
