Liquid Glass

An intriguing visual & audio installation inspired by the disused Victorian Turkish Baths/ Glass Factory on West Hill Road, St leonards Gardens. Sound-artist James Brewster will create an interactive sound-installation that fuses together the building’s dual history. After the end of its original working life, the spa building was then used as a factory for making scientific glass equipment. Brewster will salvage glass tubes and valves from the factory and create a glass system through which water can gradually flow. The sounds of the water will be picked up using hydrophonic microphones. Visitors can control the flow of water into the system, as well as change the flow and course of the water at various points. A large glass sculpture created by artist Abigail Riddihough can be seen in the gardens, while wall projections reflect the bathers of the historic Turkish Baths. Brewster will conduct a group of volunteer performers to ring different types of bells in different patterns. Performers will lead the procession onto the promenade to Bottle Alley in a circle formation.
