United visual Artists - Momentum

-

This film documents the process of building 'Momentum', the latest exhibition of United Visual Artists at the Curve Gallery, Barbican.

-

Momentum is a carefully choreographed sequence of light, sound and movement, which responds to the unique space of the Curve.

It consists of twelve pendulums that activate light and sound as they swing. Momentum creates an environment that has its foundations in detailed research, sophisticated computer technology and mechanical expertise. Yet, the effect is to create a space that feels wondrously transformed, one which you are invited to experience and explore.


'Our internal model of time, movement, mass and space is based on a lifetime of experience, perhaps even genetically encoded. What happens when we build a new model? What happens when we bend the rules?'
