DETAILS [spotlight]


DROP DEAD GORGEOUS Anolis ArcPad 48 LED fixtures are used inside lighting artist Stuart Green’s gleam- ing and breathtakingly beautiful ‘Droplet’ sculpture, a six metre tall, three metre wide stainless steel work installed on the corner of Furzer and Worgon Streets in the Phillip Woden district of Canberra, Austra- lia. Perth based Green was commissioned to create Droplet by the ACT (Australian Capital Territory) Government. Its elegant curved and pleated shell – in the shape of a massive water droplet - is made from laser cut 316 marine grade stainless steel, and has a quirky ten degree tilt. The ArcPad 48s were specified by Western Australia based design practice Light Ap- plication and supplied by the Gold Coast HQ of Anolis’ Australian distributor The ULA Group, co-ordinated by ULA’s Architectural Lighting & Vision Consultant, Jason Saun- ders. The ArcPad 48 fixtures are installed in the base of Droplet pointing upwards and out- wards to the east and west. They are pro- grammed to run a colour changing sequence that morphs from blue to pink to white, etc. over a five minute period. www.anolis.eu


KLIK TRICK


‘Luminous’, claimed to be the world’s larg- est interactive light installation, in the new Darling Quarter precinct in Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) has been lit using Klik Systems’ LEDs.


The installation is a permanent platform solely for illuminated digital art – both ani- mated and still. The ‘canvas’ extends over four levels of two campus-style buildings, covering 557 windows in total, presenting a radiant digital façade spanning a distance of 150 metres. The Commonwealth Bank of Australia, which occupies the building, is joint partner in the project along with The Sydney Foreshore Authority and Lend Lease. Together they chose Bruce Ramus as the artistic director of content for Luminous. Canadian-born Ra- mus made his name lighting stage shows for U2 and David Bowie, and is design mentor for Sydney Opera House. Each window forms a ‘pixel’ in the canvas, lit with Klik Systems’ linear LEDs along the window sills, and seen from a distance they can form a coherent animated picture, should the artist want that effect. A sophis- ticated colour palette is available, thanks to a white chip added to the usual RGB colours. www.kliksystems.com.au
