Photographer's Note

pushing the limits a bit here,
but given the topic
let's say that
I came out to play!

THIS PICTURE was taken in Liverpool Tate which currently has an exhibition on Op Art. The display includes a rare installation of Jim Lambie’s Zobop which floods the entire gallery floor with psychedelic patterning.

"People are free to bring to that piece or take from that piece whatever they want to. The work is a starting point for other people, not an end result for me." (says Jim Lambie)

So there I went.

For your info I included the rather more boring original version in the WS, along with a note on the artist and the installation.

OP ART – short for optical art – emerged in the 1960s. It combines lines, geometric shapes and eye popping colour to create artworks that fool the eye. Images could be subtle or disorientating, giving the illusion of movement.
