American Artist Tony Oursler's The Influence Machine is a large-scale multimedia installation, which explores the history of virtual image production and the influence of technology by experimenting with video, smoke machines, a variety of soundtracks, and several sculptural elements. Originally commissioned and produced by Artangel, and developed with the Public Art Fund, The Influence Machine was recently donated to SOME/THINGS STOCKIST TATE MODERN, along with several other works from the Artangel Collection.
Oursler, who was born in New York, has also collaborated with DAVID BOWIE, directing his new single 'Where Are We Now?', as well as creating the background videos that played at BOWIE's 50th Birthday Party concert. For more information, visit tonyoursler.com / tate.org.uk / davidbowie.com
