Strike a pose

21st July 2000 at 01:00
(Photograph) - Having fun with technology that entertains, amuses and astounds, is the idea behind a permanent exhibition at The Lowry in Manchester.

The ArtWorks show includes live sculpture (right) that gives children the chance to become an exhibit by entering suspended fabric tubes and using thei bodies to strike weird and wonderful poses.

Entrance for school groups costs pound;3 per person. Around one hour should be allowed to tour the attraction. The Lowry is based at Pier 8, Salford Quays, Manchester. Exhibition tickets can be pre-booked by calling the box office on: 0161 876 2000.
