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, octagonal construction positioned at the base of the tower, and an interactive sonic element consisting of a giant glockenspiel through the central void of the helical staircase. The work was commissioned by Cryptic and The Lighthouse, as part of Sonica 2018 and the Mackintosh 150 celebrations.

Item Type:Exhibitions
Additional Information:The work is a 6 month installation and will be in place until January 2019.
