Always/Never

source: uvacouk

United Visual Artists (UVA) are an art and design practice based in London, creating work that lies at the intersections of sculpture, architecture, live performance and installation.

The studio’s origins in design for live performance led to a sustained interest in spectacle, the relationship between passive and active participation, and the use of responsive systems to create a sense of presence. As UVA’s work has broadened and evolved towards large-scale permanent works, it has become more influenced by the complex systems found in nature, while retaining its desire to emotionally engage the viewer and create a sense of communion.

With an open approach to collaboration, the members of UVA come from backgrounds in a wide variety of disciplines, and this cross-pollination of skills inspires new fields of exploration.

United Visual Artists have been commissioned by Artwise Curators, The Creators Project, La Gaite Lyrique, National Maritime Museum, Opera North, Royal Academy of Arts,Victoria & Albert Museum and YCAM Japan.

Their work has been exhibited at institutions and galleries including the South Bank Centre, the Wellcome Collection, Durham Cathedral, Riflemaker, Gazelli Art House and The British Library. Internationally UVA have shown in Barcelona, Beijing, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Sao Paolo, St Petersburg, Taipei and Tokyo. Their designs for live performance have led to commissions for venues such as the Tate Modern turbine hall, the Serpentine Gallery and Madison Square Garden in New York. With public art works on permanent display in London, Bristol, Toronto and Istanbul.

Always / Never
London
2012

Always/Never is the result of UVA’s recent investigations of the perception of time.

Always/Never is a grid of pyramidal elements inspired by the sundial, each passing through time at a different rate.

Changing patterns of light and shadow create the illusion of a fluid surface; shifting combinations of colours from nature recall different times of day.
