UnitedVisualArtists is a London studio combining art direction, production design and software engineering for spectacular results. The collaboration between these disciplines results in live, immersive interactive experiences. Photographs by John Adrian.
The installation shown, titled Volume, was exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. It features an array of columns emitting light and sound, which responds to movement in a variety of ways. You can watch a video of the piece to get more of an idea of the experience.
Audio was produced by Robert Del Naja (aka 3D) of Massive Attack and his co-writer Neil Davidge through their music production company, onepointsix. Sometimes the merging of different fields can yield wonderful results, as with this piece.
Here technology connects us to art through interaction in a way art alone cannot.
The following images document the making of Volume.
