The stunning installation you see here was created following an innovative pursuit of depicting time without using any traditional means of measurement. London-based Art and Design practice, United Visual Artists (UVA), sought to create a piece of art which could effectively show the passing of time, whilst also eradicating the need to use seconds, minutes or hours. UVA describe the architectural make-up of this piece as “a grid of pyramidal elements inspired by the sundial, each passing through time at a different rate”. To fulfill their ambitious brief, UVA turned to light, to exhibit the perceived feeling of time passing, as opposed to the literal representation a clock provides us with. The structure of the piece is said to exhibit “changing patterns of light and shadow [to] create the illusion of a fluid surface; shifting combinations of colours from nature, recalling different times of day”.
