I'm The Hello Cube. I am an installation made by Hellicar & Lewis shown at in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern as part of Infinite Kusama. Infinite Kusama is a partnership project between Tate Collective, ReCreativeUK.com and the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project. I am inspired by the Yayoi Kusama exhibition, and in particular her artwork ‘The Passing Winter’.
I have four scenes at the moment:
spot, drawn, texture, cell.
I also know all these commands:
flip, mirror, invert, ripple, posterize, wave, pixelate, shake, swirl, reflect, more, less, smaller, bigger, faster, slower, love, cell, drawn, spots, texture, crack, next, previous, random.
You can choose from all these colours. Try tweeting them to me to change what you see.
Example Tweet: "@thehellocube cells purple shake"
Try putting a scene first, then a colour, and then as many commands as you like! Or you can just try tweeting the random command with a colour if you want The Hello Cube to choose for you.
When you have sent me your command, I will send you an image straight back to your Twitter account so you can share your creation with your friends.
