One of my all-time interactive installation heroes, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, is giving an artist’s talk at the Tate Modern tomorrow. He is representing Mexico at the Venice Biennale 2007 and his Body Movies projects remains, to me, one of the best interactive installations of all time. It perfectly combines simplicity and play layered over a more complex interaction. Most importantly, it also connects strangers emotionally and sometimes physically in spontaneous acts of playfulness an interaction.

His talk is at the Tate Modern on Thursday 14 June 2007, 18.30–20.00. For those of you who can be there, there will also be a webcast of it too.

Someone in London please go and let me know what it was like!
