UVA – the famous team of London artists, architects and light designers, who create interactive architecture installations, and who design and stage massive performances for MTV, fashion shows and the international tours of such musicians as The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Arctic Monkeys and U2.

At the Yota Space festival the UVA team presented their new, stunningly beautiful installation “Volume”. This audiovisual project was created in collaboration with the electronica geniuses from Bristol, Massive Attack, and commissioned by the royal museum of Victoria&Albert. Forty-six meter-high audiovisual pillars react to the movements of the viewer as they wander within this mysterious and colorful forest – simultaneously making them both a viewer and a full participant in the performance.


Volume is a sculpture of light and sound – an array of light columns positioned dramatically in the centre of the garden. Volume responds spectacularly to human movement, creating a series of audio visual experiences. Step inside and see your actions at play with the energy fields throughout the space, triggering a brilliant display of light and sound.

The piece is a collaboration between design collective United Visual Artists (UVA) and Robert Del Naja (aka 3D) of Massive Attack and his long-term co-writer Neil Davidge (as part of their music production company, one point six).

The installation consists of 47 columns of light, each with their own audio output. The visitor determines their own pathway through the columns affecting and creating their own unique journey through light, nature and space.

Volume’ won the D&AD Yellow Pencil in 2007 for Outstanding Achievement in the Digital Installation category and was included in the 2008 ‘Designs Of The Year’ show at The

Design Museum, London.
