  3. Universal Everything and You
    Drawing in Motion
    21 September 2013 - 7 February 2014
    Media Space at the Science Museum, London
    A large audio-visual artwork created collaboratively through a smart phone app will be on display for the first time at Media Space, the new galleries opening in the Science Museum, London. Art and design collective Universal Everything have been commissioned to create this new two-part installation which will go on display from 21 September 2013.
    Working with emergent technologies Universal Everything, founded by Matt Pyke in 2004, have developed a vibrant playful aesthetic. The two parts of this digital installation, 1000 Hands and Presence, originate from simple line drawings and are united in the gallery space through sound and light. Hyundai Motor UK is Presenting Partner of this first installation in the Virgin Media Studio.
    Universal Everything have a history of collaboration and 1000 Hands will be created through contributions from the public through a smart phone app. In the physical space, 1000 Hands will take the form of a circular projection onto multiple screens with each screen showing an individual user-generated artwork. An evolving soundtrack will amplify and recede over time in relation to the works moving in unison on screen. Through the smart phone app a simple line drawing will grow into an elaborate, evolving form. Drawing different shapes will reveal hidden forms, behaviours and appearances.
    Presence will be a circular four screen video installation occupying the space around 1000 Hands. These screens will show moving abstract forms against a black background, and the motion of these forms will reveal a human presence. These life-size abstract forms have been created by motion captured performances of dancers Julia Eichten and Nathan Makolandra from Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Project. The playback of the performances in Presence show the dancers in a growing number of digital ‘costumes’, for example, glowing feathers or elaborate sculptural trails. The performances evolve in appearance over time, changing materials, colour and behaviour but always moving to an audio pulse which harmonises with the soundtrack of 1000 Hands.

  5. An experimental collaboration with Radiohead, Stanley Donwood and Nigel Godrich.

    Universal Everything were commissioned to develop Polyfauna as a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and using imagery and sounds from the song Bloom.

    Set to a lunar calendar, the mysterious, immersive app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. A pioneering new collision between digital art and the world of apps, the collaboration sees the creation of abstracted, expanded and exploded versions of audio and visual work by the band.

    Inviting the user into an immersive, expansive world of primitive life, weather, sunsets, mountains and forests, Polyfauna comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious. It is inspired by everything from the atmospheric landscape paintings of JW Turner and Peter Doig, to the computational life forms of Karl Sims.
