very therapeutic, brings calming and peaceful thoughts and feelings. I would thoroughly recommended to anyone. 

Joao D.

Soothing yet intriguing. The light movement and reflections combined with the different sounds makes Momentum an incredible perception shifting experience. You won't regret spending 30+ min sitted at this curvy, smokey hall

Giacomo

Get rid of all your stressful thoughts with this hypnotic lights installation. Worth the queue!

Cheryl

I queued for half an hour to see the 'UVA:Momentum' installation on Saturday and it was really worth it, as I felt that I had stepped into another world. I liked the rhythmic, wave-like sway of the pendulum lights creating patterns that guided me through the long walk on the Curve, only aware of shadows and empty spaces. Brilliant!

Sarah Pyne

Intriguing and slightly trippy - this clip shows just enough to make me want to see it for myself. Quiero ir y verlo!

Curated London

United Visual Artists are renowned for their bold, immersive work, a trend they continue in their new show at the Barbican’s Curve Gallery. Momentum is an installation of light and sound, employing a minimal aesthetic to create an ethereal world. Once inside, the near-darkness and barren soundscape disorient the viewer. The boundaries of the space, as well as the passage of time, become blurred. Hard to define, and to describe, Momentum is a simple idea, brilliantly executed.
