Keith Tyson at the Turner Prize Retrospective 1984-2006 | TateShots

Keith Tyson at the Turner Prize retrospective. Keith Tyson won the Turner Prize in 2002, the year the then culture minister Kim Howells caused a media storm by describing the entries as ‘cold, mechanical, conceptual, bullshit’.  Tyson talks about the effect winning had on him, and discusses the works he showed in the Turner Prize Retrospective, including The Thinker (After Rodin), a black hexagonal column containing a bank of computers that emit a constant hum, first shown in the 2002 exhibition.
