Anicka Yi Releases Tentacled Aerobes into Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall

Anicka Yi’s In Love With The World, the annual Hyundai Commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, opens, turning the iconic post-industrial space into a machine ecosystem. Eight helium-filled “aerobes” drift through the hall’s upper reaches, tentacles gently rising and falling as their artificial life software system guides them towards human heat. To enhance the scenery, the Korean-American artist added weekly ‘scentscapes,’ evoking the smell of prehistoric oceans or that of the industrial age.
