Portal

“It’s better than CGI.” The Herald

Audiences embarked on an audiovisual adventure as multimedia artist Robbie Thomson and composer Alex Menzies transformed the 762 metre-long walkway of the Clyde Tunnel into a sensory subterranean spectacle.

“a richly installed installation across the breadth of the tunnel and the harsh concrete of the surroundings.” The Quietus

Inspired by marine mythology and science fiction, this otherworldly odyssey revealed robotic sculptures and electronic sounds which led you through a series of close encounters. Immersive and intriguing, Portal presented a rare opportunity to re-discover this remarkable Glasgow landmark which celebrated its 55th anniversary year as part of the cultural programme of the European Championships 2018.

“Portal feels like a haunted house put together by Ridley Scott in his 1980s Alien and Blade Runner heyday.” The Scotsman
