The Influence Machine by Tony Oursler
A psycho-landscape of ethereal figures projected onto the cathedral, trees, walls and clouds of smoke. This artwork, by the American artist Tony Oursler, tells stories of the technological leaps in telecommunication - from the telegraph to the radio, the television and the internet - delving deep into the history of media.
The Influence Machine is from The Artangel Collection and is presented as part of Arts Council Collection National Partners Programme supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Foyle Foundation, Arts Council England, Birmingham Museums Trust and Colmore Business District.
