United Visual Artists’ Momentum

Momentum, a space and time distorting exhibition described as a “spatial instrument,” premiered at London’s Barbican Curve Gallery this past February, and included twelve mechanical pendulums that formed an evolutionary composition of light, sound, and movement. As visitors traverse the space, the pendulums were programmed to move in idiosyncratic manners, so that shadows surged across the room and sounds bounced off the chamber walls. It became a unique (and beautifully hynpotic) experience for every visitor.
