Pozyx RTLS solution plays key role as technology provider in mind-boggling artwork “In Love With The World”
Ghent, Belgium - October 13, 2021 - Pozyx, a leading provider of the most accurate and innovative indoor RTLS (real-time location system) based on UWB (ultra-wide band) technology, today announced that the artist Anicka Yi has integrated the Pozyx positioning system in her inspirational artwork “In Love With the World”, featuring in London’s Tate Modern Turbine Hall.
Pozyx is thrilled and honored to be part of this mind-blowing art experience. This atypical RTLS project uses Pozyx hardware and software to track the positions of Yi’s giant floating Aerobes and Xenojellies, inflated biologized robots that interact amongst each other and react to visitor crowds.
Yi is known for her experimental work which explores the merging of technology and biology and encourages us to think about new ways in which machines might inhabit the world.
Anicka Yi, Artist, said, “This is a once in a life-time experience to be able to expose in Tate’s Modern Turbine Hall. Poetry inspired me to create an aquarium of machines where technology is everything, the cornerstone of the exhibition. Pozyx’s accurate positionings technology is truly amazing in making this concept a reality.”
Vadim Vermeiren, COO & Co-Founder of Pozyx, stated, “It is truly an inspiring scene seeing these Aerobes fly around so effortlessly. Knowing the complexity of the technology requirements and the team effort behind it, makes this project a real one-of-kind art piece. Pozyx is honored to be involved.”
