Art Piece Makes You Feel Like You’re Inside a Lightning Storm

Uva Serpentine 0031

Watch: Art Piece Makes You Feel Like You’re Inside a Lightning Storm @ Wired Design.

Sou Fujimoto’s massive pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery in London is a beautiful and sprawling piece of architecture. The delicate structure, made from 20mm steel poles, consumes nearly 3,800 square feet of the London gallery’s front lawn. On its own, it’s an impressive sight. But in the hands of United Visual Artists, a London-based artist studio that specializes in sound and light architecture, it becomes nearly awe-inspiring in its visual magnitude. Commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery and My Beautiful City, UVA transformed Fujimoto’s spindly structure with a light show that echoes the insane lightning storms you see in the natural world. “This piece specifically aimed to energize Sou Fujimoto’s architecture, which is representative of a somewhat serene Cumulus cloud,” UVA explains. “Our intervention aimed to evoke a terrific and comparatively overwhelming electric storm in the architecture, kind of simply aiming to bring it to life.”
