  • Two species of intelligent robots have moved into some prime, Thames-side real estate: Tate Modern's Turbine Hall.
  • Collectively named "aerobes," the floating orbs that the New York-based artist Anicka Yi has created to inhabit the cavernous space are called "planulae" (the hairy, bulbous ones) and "xenojellies" (the ones with patterned tentacles).
  • They make up the installation "Anicka Yi: In Love with the World," which opened this week.
