Who needs stairs? : Carsten Holler @ Tate

I mean really, what fan of art who loves taking a minute from the hustle of the world would pass this is up? I have written a little on the idea of urban play and this pretty much pegs its union with art. As part of The Unilever Series the Tate exhibited the work of Carsten Holler from October 2006 to April 2007. This work is one that could certainly be appreciated at a distance. I'm sure you get the impression and if you have a great imagination you could probably day dream about sliding down these tubes. But, the best part is that you can. These works are perhaps only fully experienced by actually taking them up on their offer. The aesthetic is in the motion and act of sliding down these spiraling conduits.
