A large-scale immersive installation that captures our interdependence using real stories written by people living all over Scotland.
SHARE your stories with us. Tell us about the unexpected thing you did, that happened to you, the difficulty you overcame, the people around that helped. Sharing a story from YOUR HEART. We are not seeking a masterpiece or an epic saga, we just want to find the stories that inspire, HEART.
Vision Mechanics believe the arts can help people gain confidence, realise their own value and the value of others around them. The core creative team – Kim Bergsagel and Symon Macintyre – have for nearly 30 years created work to spark imaginations and encourage participation in the arts.
Some of our previous projects…
The Big Shop – a pop up festival of community stories in empty high streets
Drift – 3D soundscapes played through installations on beaches across Scotland
STORM – The Gigantic 10m Goddess of the Sea created to remind us of the impact of climate change on our oceans
The Fantastic Life of Minnie Rubinski – a unique theatre installation, a completely new way of bringing audiences to theatre, a chance to step into a recreated brain to watch a 45 minutes immersive jigsaw puzzle recalling a fantastic life.
