SpaceTime Helix | Michela Pelusio



SpaceTime Helix | Michela Pelusio

The Italian Institute of Culture is really pleased to be part of Sonica Glasgow which is produced by Cryptic and is an 11-day biennial festival, dedicated to world-class visual sonic arts, presenting exceptional international artists alongside emerging UK talent in diverse venues, city-wide.

We welcome Michela Pelusio with SpaceTime Helix


‘interactive creations that bend space, light, matter, and sound into malleable immersive environments’ – MUTEK 

Scientific research suggests that strings, vibrating at the quantum level, form the fundamental structure of our universe. Italy’s Michela Pelusio has turned the idea into a kind of metaphor, scaling up a single string to giant size and setting it to revolve in a helical pattern to form a vibrating spiral glimmering with light. Part illusionist, part lab technician, Pelusio lurks behind the twisting string, using an instrument to ‘pluck’ at it and interrupt its trajectory, causing patterns and colours to flare through its whirl. Quantum physics is where science gets weird; Pelusio’s project scales up the weirdness and makes visible what might be occurring constantly, unrecognised, all around us.

First performance at 16.00, followed by a post-show discussion with Michela Pelusio and journalist Colm McAuliffe at 16:30

Second performance at 19:00

Running times: 30 minutes
