Liliane Lijn – ‘I Want People to See Sound’ | TateShots

Meet Liliane Lijn, the American artist known for her kinetic art – incorporating motion, text and light into sculpture since the early 1960s.

‘I find science very poetic’, says the artist, who combines her interest in science, technology and language to create hypnotising sculptures that invite the viewer to slow down and focus.

In this interview, Lijn explains how her experience of the female form inspired her famous cone-shaped ‘Koan’ series.

See Liliane Lijn’s art at Tate Britain until 28 April:
