United Visual Artists are an extraordinary group of 9 people with various skills, all thoroughly contemporary and of their time, who have joined at different stages in UVA's biography (eloquently depicted here:http://uva.co.uk/about/bibliography) to make complex, hypnotic, interactive installations.
Watching a video on youtube with two members of the crew (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5LBHcXZkrY) the following quote relating to their motivation and talking about the point of the finished piece - explains a lot about their work for me:"It's all about what it makes people feel and how it make people behave - that's a really big part of it for us"
Momentum is stunning and has the effect of a secular angelus or call to meditation. It is exhibiting until 1 June 2014.
