Lumiere announces plans for return to Durham


The UK’s largest light festival returns to blaze a trail through Durham this winter with over 30 installations including works by Tracey Emin and David Batchelor. Artichoke, producers of extraordinary events, this month announced the first details of LUMIERE 2011, the world-class biennial festival celebrating artists working with light in all its forms. Over four nights from 17-20 November 2011, Durham residents and visitors will rediscover a city transformed into a magical nocturnal landscape. Artichoke has been commissioned to deliver the festival by Durham County Council, with funds from Arts Council England and other funding bodies and sponsors. Science and art will be a theme for this year’s festival, as three European artists each team up with a scientist to explore the scientific and aesthetic aspects of light.


Kings College gets energy efficient with Steinel


King’s College London, one of the world’s leading research and teaching universities based in the heart of London, has replaced manually switch-operated ceiling lights with approximately 800 high-frequency sensor controlled lights from Steinel at one of its chief halls of residence. The move will provide payback within two years and help fund the next energy/carbon reduction project at the university. Each Steinel RS PRO 500 features state-of-the-art high frequency sensors that guarantee detection accuracy in 360°, at a distance of up to 8m. The sensors work regardless of ambient temperature or direction of movement. They provide switching performance that’s virtually instant and are integrated more or less out of sight. Funding for the project has been aided by the college’s participation in the ‘invest to save scheme’ through Salix, an independent, publicly funded company set up to accelerate public sector investment in energy efficiency technologies.

Birmingham chooses Leader Light for Corporate Lighting


In the few short months of being distributed in the UK by White Light, the comprehensive range of LED fixtures from Leader Light has attracted quite considerable attention – and has already been selected by a number of lighting practitioners, including the team at the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre. The theatre has purchased seven Leader Light Stage Wash RGBAW fixtures, a 60cm long, 12cm wide, 12.5cm deep LED batten that incorporates five LED colours – red, green, blue, amber and white – to give a higher output and more flexible colour options than the more familiar three-colour RGB fixtures. The Stage Wash is easy to control, using standard 5-pin XLR DMX connectors, and has the familiar LED virtue of using less energy – 110W maximum – than equivalent tungsten fixtures.
