I hope you won’t think I am behind with collections or anything like that but I just thought it would be great to post an insight into the people behind Y-3’s AW10 show. UVA or United Visual Artists in full are a london based company who specialise in making us appreciate the one thing we take for granted – light. With a vast portfolio of lighting installations the Y-3 show looked as if it was chips for these guys as they have established a distinctive style and approach towards our perceptions of light if any that is as I know most people see it as day and night or a light switch -on and off. I took time out to check out their Vimeo channel and I was amazed by the way they use both sound and light as one producing some sort of minority report futuristic Judge Dredd feeling.
Back to Y-3, I think UVA did a great job with the show and it should not be forgotten so keep up to date with their work here.
