UVA at the Speed of Light
United Visual Artists are working on a major installation for London's South Bank using lasers to create responsive artworks. In the first of a series of videos, they explain their work so far on the project
UVA were commissioned by Virgin Media to create 'an immersive light installation celebrating 10 years of broadband in the UK'. Speed of Light will be a series of experimental light works flowing through the labyrinthine spaces of the Bargehouse, the four-storey industrial space on the South Bank which has hosted various art events in the recent past as well as the St Martins degree show.
Here,UVA's Dave Ferner explains the idea behind the project and how they will use the space.
We will post further videos as work develops.
Speed of Light will be at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London, SE1 9PH, from April 9 to 19.
I like the contrast of old warehouse space and minimalist modern lighting, looking forward to see this one.
They should have a great big rave there for the opening!
UVA's work is absolutely brilliant - I've been folllowing their work for a number of years and it's great they are getting the fame and fortune they deserve. Definately worth catching any of their installations.
I love UVA's work! They rock!
