UVLAB

UV LAB is a multifaceted collective committed to redefining our practice through a deep exploration of art, community engagement, and sustainable design. Our approach is rooted in a profound understanding of the interconnectedness between social, cultural, and environmental contexts, driving us to create meaningful and transformative experiences within inhabited spaces.

 

With a multidisciplinary lens, UV LAB merges spatial practices, digital technology, and construction science to push the boundaries of artistic expression and problem-solving. We believe that by embracing both traditional wisdom and cutting-edge innovation, we can create truly unique and sustainable solutions that resonate with local communities and global audiences alike.

Central to our mission is the belief in the power of art to spark dialogue, foster inclusivity, and drive positive change. Through collaborative projects and research initiatives, we actively engage with diverse communities, seeking to amplify marginalized voices and co-create solutions that address pressing social issues.

 

In essence, UV LAB strives to redefine the practice of public art by embracing complexity, embracing inclusivity, and embracing sustainability. Our goal is not just to create visually stunning installations, but to catalyze meaningful experiences that inspire, empower, and unite us in our shared journey towards a more equitable, resilient, and harmonious world.

Founded in 2014 on the journey between Syria and France, UV LAB harnesses the power of artistic expression to address pressing social issues and promote dialogue across borders.

 

The name UV LAB is a nod to the U and V directions of a surface in 3D modeling, which represents the two-dimensional coordinates used to define a surface in three dimensions. But it also has a deeper meaning; the U and V directions can be seen as a metaphor for the Global South and Global North, respectively. By referencing these directions, UV LAB seeks to bridge the gap between different cultures and perspectives.

The logo

The UV LAB logo features a seed pattern created by combining the U and V letters.

 

When applying generative design methods and Islamic geometric patterns principles, this seed pattern becomes the "cell unit," which is the smallest motif that can be repeated to create the entire geometry. By repeating and rotating the cell unit, the fundamental unit is introduced, and the combined cell units containing the fundamental unit form the fundamental region.

Repeating and rotating the fundamental region results in an intersection between segments or between a segment and the fundamental region's boundaries, leading to fundamental unit parameterization. Each new transformation results in a geometry that is qualitatively similar to the original geometry and can expand infinitely.
