Carsten Holler's Giant slides

In 2006 Holler installed five giant slides at the Tate Modern Turbine Hall, which were a big hit with the public. This time two slides will be attached to the outside of the Hayward. Holler said he hoped they would be a device for "experiencing an emotional state that is a unique condition somewhere between delight and madness". The aim of the major exhibition, entitled Decision, is to constantly make visitors reflect on the choices and decisions they make. The slides will be the final decision to make on how to exit the exhibition. Visitors will even have to decide how to enter the first part of the exhibition with two separate entrances.
