Volo is a virtual reality swing adventure by Studio Go Go, taking place in four iconic locations in the City of London. Riders wear a VR headset as they swing, transporting them inside one of four dream experiences, each offering a different sensation of flight. The installation is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s flying machines, his studies of flight, and the effects of gravity.
This exhilarating installation is commissioned by City of London and Culture Mile as part of the Fantastic Feats: the building of London. Volo also celebrates the life and achievements of Leonardo Da Vinci on the 500th anniversary of his death.
A 21st century ride design company, Studio Go Go was established in 2018 with assistance from Innovate UK. Volo is the studio’s first public project, made possible with support from Arts Council England and Middlesex University.
