Tate Gallery: Exploring Modern Art
Attica Cybernetics scores another hit with Tate Gallery: Exploring Modern Art. The easy-to-grasp menu, offering a photographic floor plan of the program, quickly directs you to the Information Desk, which explains the basics of the program. Then you’re off to visit any of the six galleries comprising the heart of the program: Picasso, Barbara Hepworth, Pop Art, Dynamism, Modern British Sculpture, and Men and Women. Cruise the room, pausing at will to zoom in and hear the commentary, then move along. The narration is a bit light, but more information can be found in the Archive section. There is also a Private Gallery feature which allows you to create a file of pictures and text to export to a clipboard, disk, or printer. While the program is limited to an exploration of just a portion of the Tate Collection, it succeeds in doing what it sets out to do with clarity and style.
