What's On Guide
SpaceTime Helix
Sat 20 Jan, 8pm 

Performed in its Quays theatre, SpaceTime Helix uses an experimental machine called an ‘opto-acoustic,’ to create a visual performance of sound and light. The performance is the brain-child of Italian Art-Scientist Michela Pelusio, in collaboration with a different electronic sound artist for each show.

On stage the two artists will create a unique live performance at The Lowry.SpaceTime Helix is never the same as the two artists respond to each other live on stage.

Art-Scientist Michela Pelusio said "The performance forges a malleable kinetic sculpture that bends space, light, matter and sound. When you look at the Helix you can see quantum mechanics when the Helix jumps from one shape to the next. A natural phenomenon which is almost a miracle right in front of your eyes."

Although beautiful to watch as an optical illusion of sound and light, the work has more to it than at first glance. The artist takes String Theory is a starting point, as she explores the natural phenomenon of sound and light.

She continues “Vibrating strings are fundamental in our understanding of the world and the universe. Space Time Helix is a metaphor for the return to the root of things, and to the simplicity and the complexity of the macro and microcosmos, the internal and external space, the architecture of the mind and the architecture of nature.

Michela Pelusio is an Italian sculptor, Art-Scientist (Art and Science MA) and performer. Her work focuses on immersive arts using space, light, matter and sound. Her research involves the exploration of human perception and the crossover between art, science and technology. She has performed internationally at numerous venues and festivals, with this performance being a huge hit with audiences at MUTEK Montreal 2017.
