The Hello Cube
The Hello Cube: What is it?
In late 2011 Tate commissioned creative duo Hellicar & Lewis to create a new and interactive digital installation inspired in some way by the work of Yayoi Kusama. Their finished work, The Hello Cube, was revealed during the Infinite Kusama event at Tate Modern on 24 March 2011. Here, Hellicar & Lewis discuss the creative brief, their inspiration and what you could expect from The Hello Cube before its unveiling on the Turbine Hall Bridge at Tate Modern...
The Hello Cube: the creative process
On 13 February 2011 Hellicar & Lewis worked with members of young people's forums Tate Collective and the Art Assassins from the South London Gallery to help brainstorm the commands and creative possibilities of The Hello Cube. The cube, which was commissioned by Tate, was an interactive, digital installation that communicated and created via Twitter. Get an insight into Hellicar & Lewis's working-making process and an early look at some of the technological feats The Hello Cube would be performing. It might be a digital project but every creative process needs pens, paper and dancing.
Infinite Kusama was a day-long series of events and workshops hosted by Tate's young people's forum, Tate Collective on 24 March 2011. It was inspired by the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who's show at Tate Modern ran from 9 February - 5 June 2011. Infinite Kusama also featured the public debut of The Hello Cube, an interactive digital installation that used Twitter to create and communicate.
