November 2017 – Micropolis revealed in Hull City of Culture 2017

 

Our HULL CITY OF CULTURE 2017 commission MICROPOLIS has now been revealed and it attracted 2000 visitors during its first weekend alone!

Powered by mice and micromen, the biggest McGuire installation to date runs until the 5th of November at the Victorian Pumping Station in Kingston upon Hull.

 

Have a look at our rough sneak peak video to see the city come to live with animations: https://vimeo.com/239669252
