Momentum 動量


Barbican has commissioned the multi-disciplinary art and design studio United Visual Artists (UVA) to create a new work for the Curve. Coinciding with their 10th anniversary, UVA present Momentum, an immersive installation that combines light, sound and movement. Drawing on physics and digital technology, UVA are turning the Curve into a spatial instrument, installing a sequence of pendulum-like elements throughout the 90metre long gallery to create an evolving composition of light and sound. The pendulums – sometimes moving in unexpected ways – project shadows and planes of light across the 6metre-high walls and curved floor of the space. Visitors are invited to explore the room at their own pace, and their movement through the gallery shapes their individual experience.

United Visual Artists is an art practice that use design processes to combine a wide range of disciplines including sculpture, installation, live performance, and architecture. The studio has an open approach to collaboration, uniting diverse skills to continuously evolve new technologies and materials, which in turn suggest new artistic directions. UVA’s lines of enquiry include the tension between real and synthesised experiences – the questioning of our relationship with technology, and the creation of phenomena that transcend the purely physical. In all their work, they aim to distill complexity down to its essence. UVA’s installations consider each space an immersive environment where the visitor’s point of view plays an important role in the outcome.

跨學科藝術與設計工作室“聯合視覺藝術家UVA(United Visual Artists)”為巴比肯中心曲型空間(The Curve)定製的新空間裝置作品展《動量》于2014年2月13日正式與大家見面。此次《動量》展覽適逢UVA成立10週年,藝術家們運用物理學和數字技術將整個90米長的曲型空間打造成了一個用燈光、聲音和移動效果組成的空間裝置作品。帶有燈光的鐘擺會以不可預知的方式進行運動,在6米高的圍牆和曲線形的空間內側上投射出各種陰影和燈光效果。置身整件作品之中,觀眾可以按照自己的節奏來欣賞作品或者探索整個空間。因為每位觀眾與空間和燈光互動產生的效果都是隨機的,因此所有參觀者都可以獲得與衆不同且唯一的觀展體驗。
