Ever wanted to explore a museum alone, at night?
After Dark is a series of live events taking place over five nights at Tate Britain. Via an online portal, the public will be able to control robots and roam the galleries in search of 500 years of British art.
All four robots will be controlled via the portal by members of the public worldwide. For everyone else, tune-in to robot-cam and see what the bots see, and hear what they hear, in the museum after dark!
After Dark, the brainchild of London-based studio The Workers, is the IK Prize 2014 winning project. The IK Prize celebrates digital creativity, supporting innovative ideas and turning them into new ways of enjoying and discovering art.
