Distorting Space and Time | 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 hypnotic) experience for every visitor.

The Creators Project is detailing some behind-the-scenes photos of the immersive, 90-meter-long audiovisual exhibition. Momentum may need to be experienced in person to fully comprehend how captivating it truly is, but the photos give insight into how much energy and effort was needed to make the piece a truly mesmerizing work. Take a look at the specs and the doc, and get an inside peek into the mind-bending ingenuity.
