This is the fixed, audiovisual composition component of my interactive installation, Visaurihelix, installed at The Lighthouse, Glasgow, between July 2018 and January 2019.
Commissioned by Cryptic as part of Sonica 2018 and part of the Mackintosh 150 Celebrations, Visaurihelix is an immersive, interactive audiovisual installation based on the geometric forms and proportions prevalent in so much of Mackintosh’s architecture, including the Mackintosh Tower, Scotland Street School, House for an Art Lover and The Hill House. The work consists of three constituent parts: a 30-minute, 6.1 audiovisual composition played on speakers spread throughout the Mackintosh tower, the visual representation of that composition on a custom built, hexagonal construction positioned at the base of the tower, and an interactive sonic element consisting of bowed and struck copper rods connected between levels of the staircase.
The work is free to visit, and can be seen in the Mackintosh Tower at the Lighthouse until January 2019. Dates and times:
Thu 12 July 2018 - January 2019
10.30 - 17.00 (Mon-Sat)
12.00 - 17.00 (Sun)
