“Momentum,” is a massive installation from United Visual Artists (UVA) at London’s Barbican Centre. The experience is a void of darkness filled with only 12 illuminated pendulums swinging rhythmically from the sky, creating an evolving composition of light and sound. The unexpected contrast of natural and synthetic patterns is designed to distort your perception of time and physical space.

> It is unreal what you can pick up when you have a little knowledge eg I just bought this beautiful Beaulieu 4008ZMll super8mm camera w/Schneider 6-66mm f1.8 Lens for less than the price of a disposable point & shoot digital camera (knowledge = a good friend had one & has shot such beautiful material with it – he has also set up a lab for developing & telecine of super 8!
