United Visual Artists/Ben Kreukniet (London, UK)
"Pushing the boundaries of research, software and engineering with every project, UVA's work aims above all to be meaningful and engaging."
Established in 2003, United Visual Artists is an art-and-design practice based in London. It produces work “at the intersection of sculpture, architecture, live performance, moving image and digital installation”. UVA’s team members come from many disciplines including fine art, architecture, communication design, moving image, computer science and engineering. The cross-pollination of diverse skills inspires new fields of exploration. Its live performances have led to commissions at venues such as the Tate Modern Turbine Hall in London, Madison Square Garden in New York and Trafalgar Square, London. UVA has also collaborated with musicians including Massive Attack, Jay Z, U2, The Chemical Brothers and the Battles.
