A pretty amazing installation by United Visual Artists (UVA) went up recently on London’s South Bank. Commissioned by the forward-thinking minds of Virgin, it marks the tenth anniversary of broadband in the UK.

Via Yatzer:

Speed of Light, as they explain, has as a goal to explore the themes of communication and modernity. Stripped back to its materials, fiber optic is a thin strand of glass, with nothing more than a flickering beam of light and UVA have used this beam as the starting point for their work. The installations dramatize the experience of using fiber-optic communication, re-imagining it as an immersive environment. Under their supervision, Bargehouse was completely transformed into a spaceship full of surprises and really magnetized the thousands of people that had the luck to be a part of it
