British born photographer, Rankin, first came to prominence in the early 90s where his intimate approach and playful sense of humour tapped into the consciousness of the irreverent times. After co-founding the seminal magazine, Dazed & Confused, he immersed himself with bands, artists, supermodels and politicians, rising to acclaim with his natural ability to elicit emotions and create iconic pictures.
Over the years his images have become part of contemporary iconography. Evidence of his frankness and passion for all aspects of modern culture are ostensibly represented in his photography. It seeks to push and provoke, asking questions which others may not ask.

Web Lab was more than a museum showcase; it was a collaborative space. Museum visitors and online visitors alike composed together on giant musical instrument machines, had their faces drawn in sand pits by robotic arms, teleported to distant spaces through 360° periscopes, interacted with live data paths on a world map, and much more.
