Tate Sensorium exhibition
Imagine experiencing a painting with all your senses. Not just seeing John Martin's awesome apocalyptic painting The Great Day of His Wrath (1853), but hearing the cracking earth beneath your feet. Not just admiring the blossoms of Patrick Heron's Azalea Garden (1956), but smelling the flowers and feeling the wind of the Cornish coast. Flying Object break down the quiet serenity of the gallery space with an injection of taste, touch, smell and sound that will delight visitors to the Tate galleries this summer.
IK Prize 2015 project
This project is the second winner of the IK Prize, which promotes innovative digital technology to transform the Tate collection. And after last year's winners had robots exploring the galleries by night, we can't wait to discover the latest project to turn the Tate Britain upside down.
Step into the Tate Britain exhibition and you'll find works by four fantastic twentieth-century painters: Francis Bacon, David Bomberg, Richard Hamilton and John Latham are all part of the grand experiment. With bursts of perfume and curious sounds all around, you'll be stimulated by the impressions of tactile sensations. Visitors also get to wear biometric measuring devices that reveal how your body reacted to the whole experience.
Fantastic fun and games, this is art as you've never experienced it before.
