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.
