United Visual Artists, UVA

uva.jpg
Esta es la última entrada que escribo sobre la edición de ArtFutura de este año, y me he dejado lo mejor para el final. Cualquiera que siga lo que ocurre en la escena internacional de la creación digital se habrá topado en los últimos años una y otra vez con el nombre de United Visual Artists, o UVA a secas. Se dieron a conocer con su ambiciosa escenografía para la gira 100th Window de Massive Attack, en que utilizaban una gran pantalla de LEDs para crear composiciones de luz e imagen a partir de flujos de datos que extraían de la web, relacionados con la actualidad y la ciudad en la que estaban tocando: titulares de periódicos, información de llegadas y salidas al aeropuerto, fluctuaciones de la bolsa. Desde entonces se han convertido en unos de los máximos renovadores del espacio escénico, fundiendo iluminación, vídeo y flujos de datos en un lenguaje visual homogéneo.

UVA no han dejado de trabajar con un pie en el espacio comercial y otro en el circuito del arte. Han firmado diseño de escenarios para giras de Basement Jaxx, Kylie Minogue, y la famosa gira Vertigo de U2, además de seguir su estrecha colaboración con Massive Attack. Han firmado videoclips para Colder, pero también instalaciones para galerías, intervenciones en centros como el Victoria & Albert Museum y la Tate Modern, entre otros.
UVA estarán esta tarde a las 20:00 hablando en la sala central del Mercat de les Flors sobre su meteórica carrera en los últimos tres años. Pero además, y sobre todo, mañana a partir de las 00:00 estarán en el Espacio Movistar del Fórum presentando en España su propio espectáculo en directo. Estrenado en el ICA de Londres en 2005, UVA entienden este live The Butterfly Effect 2 video como su espacio de investigación y desarrollo, en el que estrenan y testean las ideas que luego van a aplicar a proyectos futuros. Una intensa hora de datos, luz y sonido sobre LEDs que creo que realmente merecerá la pena.
