Silent Disco at the Tate Modern

The latest Silent Disco (I say latest but this was back in 2007) took place at the Tate Modern's Turbine Gallery.

The crack in the floor is actually the main exhibit at the Gallery. Called Shibboleth and constructed by Doris Salcedo, its apparently a statement on racism but to just about everyone there it's a crack dug into the floor.

and an obstacle on what was going to be a pretty large dancefloor.

I can only imagine the balloon is a marker to friends arriving later, in the same way people put flags on their tents at festivals.

Yet again, a bit of a chuckle and a decent sized crowd. These events seem to becoming more and more popular!
