Nexus & Woof Wan-Bau Create Ground-breaking Website

Nexus Interactive Arts (NIA), Nexus's dedicated interactive division, continue to create world-firsts with the launch of the amazing website for artist Tacita Dean's new installation in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern, entitled Film.
It's the twelfth annual commission in The Unilever Series and is a silent 35mm looped film projected vertically onto a 13 metre high monolith.
Taking inspiration from Dean's passion for analogue film making, the website is an immersive journey through a series of cinematic tableaux, each one describing a part of the film making process.
Director Woof Wan-Bau has created a sympathetic and almost tactile environment, providing a beautiful synergy between analogue subject matter and digital technology to give an inviting and fully interactive user experience.
The website, developed by digital studio El Mysterioso, uses unique HTML5 techniques to create an edge-to-edge video that acts as an interactive gateway to the content, a lot of which was especially commissioned for the site from artists and filmmakers.
Variations of the site will work for iPhone and iPad, allowing the widest accessibility and capitalising on the non-Flash development approach.
