Scanner. How to make art from life (with the help of a few ghosts)
18.00 Wednesday 11 June
Scanner will present a history of work that has slipped between the borders of performance, installation, music and art, from scanning mobile phone networks, composing a new National Anthem for Europe and collaborating with fashion designers, choreographers, hospitals and the homeless. And how to do all this without drinking tea, coffee, alcohol, meat or smoking.

'He is very experimental because he is searching in a realm of sound which is not usually used for music...he has a good sense of atmosphere'.
Karlheinz Stockhausen - BBC

Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner is a conceptual artist, writer, and musician working in London, whose works traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form. Since 1991 he has been intensely active in sonic art, producing concerts, installations and recordings, the albums Mass Observation (1994), Delivery (1997), and The Garden is Full of Metal (1998) hailed by critics as innovative and inspirational works of contemporary electronic music.

Committed to working with cutting edge practitioners he has collaborated with Bryan Ferry, Radiohead, Laurie Anderson, The Royal Ballet, Steve McQueen, Philips Design, Mike Kelley, and Douglas Gordon.
