Step inside “Momentum,” the massive installation from United Visual Artists (UVA) at London’s Barbican Centre. The experience is a void of darkness filled with only 12 illuminated pendulums swinging rhythmically from the sky, creating an evolving composition of light and sound. The unexpected contrast of natural and synthetic patterns is designed to distort your perception of time and physical space
I think perhaps the most fascinating thing about this project was how simple the construction was.
It was 12 lights that swing from the sky.
And yet that idea was able to capture something beautiful
I think the movement of the light really shows when the images are taken with light exposure.
It’s really quite amazing how a space can be changed with some simple moving lights.
I think one take away for my own project would be to explore the relationship of time and space using lights.
How do we perceive light and how does that distort reality?
