Model for Tate in Space

Wiggleswoth Model

The idea arose out of thinking about some of the iconic artworks owned or exhibited by the Tate (see below). We wondered how they might relate to an interior space if they were in zero gravity.

We are especially interested in the idea of the Everyday so the art objects chosen are those which could be found even in your own home. Their presence makes the interior into an interior but they also ask: What is Art?

The model encourages you to find art in your own world. It is as simple as possible to
make, using low technology, and can be done by old and young alike.

You can download the model as a PDF file - to view the file you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader v4 or above on your computer.
