Production specifics
In cooperation with SHAPE—Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe. Sponsored by the European Union’s “Creative Europe” program. Michela Pelusio is a 2019 SHAPE Artist.

A white thread is made to vibrate, dancing around its own axis and quickly forming a standing wave while bathed in colorful light, sonorously rotating into eternity and pointing the way towards a new constellation of space and time. SpaceTime Helix is the title of this mysterious drama, which media artist Michela Pelusio conjured with the help of a dark space and the optical-acoustic instrument that she developed. The work was created in Austria in 2012, and during the following years the artist traveled with it around the world—from Vienna to Tokyo, from Dubai to Montreal. SpaceTime Helix plays with the laws of physics and ultimately leads us back to the beginnings of the world, since standing waves are often found in nature. According to Pelusio, “Standing waves and harmonic vibrations are fundamental to our understanding of the world and the universe.” SpaceTime Helix is being performed in Graz for the first time as part of musikprotokoll.
