As with all good design, these hard hats are a combination of form and function with the artistic flair one has come to expect from the Tate. Over the years I have had the (sometimes dubious) pleasure of wearing many hard hats on building sites and on that basis I can recommend these as the crème de la crème in their field. They may well become a ‘must-have’ fashion accessory, that is, once I have convinced Tate Modern’s shop manager of their commercial potential. Then again…! On a slightly more serious note, we are looking at the whole of the TTM project as an opportunity to involve artists and to be creative . So, from hard hats to hoardings and cranes to construction workers, we will be bringing creative flair to the whole project. I will update you as the projects develop and profile the artists and groups taking part. Finally, introducing our, slightly unwilling, models and key members of the TTM Project Team.
One of them in a former life was lead singer in a well-known alternative music band. To be revealed… Wszystkiego Dobrego
PS In case you were wondering, the title of this post refers to the great Steeleye Span song All Around My Hat. Enjoy!
