Rachel Whiteread's Embankment installation at Tate Modern

We were hoping that the unveiling of Rachel Whiteread's 'Embankment' installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall might be an excuse for Tate Online to produce another excellent timelapse film, as they did with the installation of 'Untitled (Rooms)' and 'Untitled (Stairs)' in 2001.

Instead we'll just have to make do with a biography, lengthy description and a link to Whiteread objects in the collection.

Its a nice, neat way to cover a single large-scale exhibit.

The Unilever-sponsored series of major installations in the Turbine Hall and have traditionally been very popular with photographers. It would be great to see Tate Online link to the inevitable Flickr photoset that will emerge, see those associated with previous installation Olafur Eliasson's 'The Weather Project'
