Rave Art: 3D Optical Illusion Takes to The Lowry Stage

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. 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.

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.

For more about this unique experience on Jan. 20 at 8 p.m., see The Lowry.
