Post pobrano z: UVA – The Speed Of Light
Speed of Light celebrates the tenth anniversary of broadband in
the UK with a series of installations by United Visual Artists. The
installations explore the themes of communication and modernity.
Stripped back to its materials, fibre optic is a thin strand of glass,
with nothing more than a flickering beam of light. UVA has used this
beam as the starting point for its work. The installations dramatise
the experience of using fibre-optic communication, re-imagining it as
an immersive environment.
The work has been commissioned by
Virgin Media and begins with an input from the audience, which is
transferred into a pathway of light, leading through the atmospheric
environment of the Bargehouse. The continuous line of light evolves
through each installation in turn shifting in intensity and form.
