Observing the Shibboleth

I’m on my own this weekend as Sally’s off on a working holiday. So I’m doing some catching up and messing around. Here’s a little video I like. It’s a time-lapse of people looking at the “Shibboleth” exhibit at the Tate Modern, in December 2007.

I’m usually more interested with people’s reactions to the Turbine Hall exhibits, than to the exhibits themselves. I like this video because there’s so much going on. Most people slowly progress along the crack in the floor. But the group on the right refuse to budge as their tour guide conducts a detailed explanation. And old lady stops to take a deeper look. The gallery employee in the red jacket ambles up and down. I wonder what else there is to spot?
