Bicycle Zoetropes, Tate Modern

As part of the Tate Modern's festival Undercurrent: Young People's Programme, we worked with the artist Jacqueline Passmore to develop bicycle powered Zoetropes and projections in The Tanks. Undercurrent was a series of events, installations and interventions by audio, visual, digital and performance artists. Over eleven days Undercurrent used the experimental space of The Tanks to explore the relationship and influences of subcultures upon dominant or mainstream culture. At the core was the exploration of the ‘underground’ and the under-represented. We contributed to this discussion by inviting the public to pedal to project their own views onto the walls of the Tanks, allowing young people to express their ideas and concerns through an immediate, empirical exchange.
