Jands Vista are called on to create an inspiring lighting installation for World Wildlife Fund campaign


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" (Year of the Forest) campaign, he specified a Jands Vista I3 console running 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 crafted using recycled cardboard materials, and diligently lit for the darkness hours. Berlin based lighting rental company Lichtblick Bühnentechnik supplied the technical production for the WWF event, and also constructed the trees.


This was the first event at which Lichtblick Bühnentechnik had used the I3 console running on the Vista v2 software; “It really takes the complexity out of the process, and

allows you to concentrate on getting creative visual results fast” says Pommerehn, who reckons that within 45 minutes, they had created a polished and refined lightshow. 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, and were operated manually as and when they were needed. Jands Europe’s Neil Vann said “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.”
