United Visual Artists create work at the intersection of sculpture, architecture, live performance and digital installation.
UVA’s initial work in live performance led to a sustained interest in spectacle, the relationship between passive spectation 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 complex systems found in nature, while retaining its desire to emotionally engage the viewer and create a sense of communion.
UVA’s team members come from many disciplines. This cross-pollination of skills inspires new fields of exploration, which is core to their ethos. This approach to collaboration has resulted in a portfolio of commissions and exhibitions in the UK and further afield.
