Media museum’s ambition to take on the world

A major new £1.8m gallery aims to bring more than 20 new exhibits to Bradford, including the UK’s first permanent ‘Time Twister’ screen, which creates images separating visitors’ heads from their body. There will be a waterfall which appears to hover in mid-air, a 6ft sphere with animations of the sun and earth, self-portrait photos timed to the exact moment a water drop splashes, and a musical laser tunnel designed by Bradford-based artists Steve Manthorp and Shanaz Gulzar. It will also feature live, interactive shows in the new 70-capacity theatre.

Bradford University is hosting the first World Technology Universities Congress this week.
