Momentum

Barbican Curve, London.
Walking through the dark passage along the gallery, the visitors and the space are illuminated by oscillating pendulum-like elements and guided by the sound.

With their last work, Momentum, United Visual Artists (UVA) are offering a fantastic immersive experience: a way to forget about time and space.
Elements like dark and light, sound and movement are combined together to communicate at a different level of perception. The visitor is taking his own time to walk along the 'curve' becoming immediately an essential part of the work.
