Speed of Light – Exhibit London – United Visual Artists

speedoflight2010 — 14. April 2010 — Seed 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.www.virginmedia.com/speedoflight
