After Dark

Tate Britain at night - through the eyes of a robot.

Ever wished you had a secret robot alter ego? Or that you could wander around a gallery alone at night? After Dark at Tate Britain made both things possible.

Over a week in August 2014, the project invited you to join people across the world to control four robots that roamed the darkened galleries of Tate Britain after all the visitors had left, and see through their 'eyes' via The Space and the website afterdark.tate.org.uk.
