“Zobop is the collective title of an ongoing series of psychedelic floor designs by the Scottish artist Jim Lambie… The artist has explained that the intention behind the work is to fill a room with rhythm while keeping the space itself free from physical obstruction, in a manner analogous to that of music…The titular word ‘Zobop’ was invented by Lambie, and as a linguistic coinage it might be compared with the twentieth-century neologisms ‘Be-Bop’ and ‘Re-Bop’, introduced in the 1940s to characterise the complex chords and syncopated rhythms of emergent jazz.”
