Rafael Lozano-Hemmer artist's talk at the Tate Mondern

Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (b1967) presents his recent interactive art installations, including Wavefunction a kinetic sculpture premiered at the Venice Biennale 2007, and the large public art project Under Scan which toured the East Midlands in 2006. Lozano-Hemmer creates platforms for public participation by perverting technologies such as robotics, computerised surveillance or telematic networks. Inspired by phantasmagoria, carnival and animatronics, Lozano-Hemmer describes his huge light and shadow works as 'anti monuments for alien agency'.
