∞ Enchanted Forest Jands Vista called on to coordinate lighting for World Wildlife Fund campaign


fast," says Pommerehn, "Especially running with Vista v2. It really takes the complexity out of the process, and allows you to concentrate on getting creative visual results fast.” Pommerehn reckons that within 45 minutes, they had a polished and refined lightshow, which was then run in 15-minute loops to a soundtrack throughout the evening.


When Fred Pommerehn, renowned installation artist and lighting designer, was commissioned to create a display as part of the World Wildlife Fund’s "Deutschland wird Wald Meister 2011" (Year of the Forest) campaign, he specified a Jands Vista I3 console, running the next generation Vista v2 software, to control the lighting.


The temporary installation was in place on the steps of the famous Konzerthaus in Berlin’s Gendarmenmarkt square, and featured 26 fabulous tree sculptures measuring up to six metres in height, each carefully crafted using recycled cardboard materials, and diligently lit for the darkness hours. Berlin based lighting rental company Lichtblick Bühnentechnik supplied all the technical production for the WWF event, and also constructed the trees. This was the first event on which Lichtblick Bühnentechnik had used the I3 running on the Vista v2 software; “Using the Jands Vista allowed us to work very

The trees were lit by approximately 100 fixtures positioned at the sides of the steps for neat low level cross lighting and a row along the top for backlighting. Three fog machines were also run through the Vista I3, operated manually as and when


needed. The Vista v2 software was designed from the ground up to give all levels of user the ability to get the most from whatever technology they have available - whether dimmers, moving lights, LEDs or media - so focus can be on creating a great show rather than on programming a desk. Jands Europe’s Neil Vann said “Fred is sure that using Jands Vista makes a difference to his creative process, and


ultimately the success of the lighting in his work. It is unusual for a light artist to specify a control platform, often they don't particularly mind as long as the lights are programmed to their specification, but Fred has realised that this choice can make a huge difference. It is great to see Vista v2 delivering again in yet another environment, and helping a designer get the most out of their design”.
