033 VAPOUR TRAIL


Artist Dan Davis has recently exhibited a light art piece at FOLD Gallery in London. Using orange gels over a halogen light source shining into the gallery, the notion of a ‘Sodium Vapour Night Light’ came about when the artist arrived home late one night after a long day in the studio. His bedroom window was permeated with a deep orange glow emanating from the sodium vapour streetlights below. The white blinds in the window obscured full view and the condensation on the glass refracted the light in a pleasingly hellish vision. Davis re-created this in the gallery, as its reminiscent of how film set windows were often never really windows to the outside, but windows to a re-creation of the outside.

LIGHT THERAPY ‘Kaleidoscope’ is a light artwork made for the new Radiotherapy department at Skåne University Hospital in Lund, Sweden. Cre- ated by the artist Aleksandra Stratimirovic, the piece was completed in May 2013. Designed to create a playful, relaxing and hopeful element into these clinical and highly technical radiotherapy rooms, the work consists of light dots (Philips Color Kinetics iColor Flex) spread in regular sym- metrical shapes resembling kaleidoscopic fractals. There are six therapy rooms and each room has its own pattern. The bright- ness, colour and dynamics of the LEDs are controlled by a very detailed programme, that repeats after 50 hours. Light installa- tion is integrated in the room’s architecture and does not dominate with its presence, but it can engage viewer’s attention with its vibrant micro world. www.strati.se


GUERILLAS IN THE MIST Working with Sharon Stammers and Martin Lupton of Light Collective, Xicato sponsored and developed a guerrilla style architectural lighting improv event at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois in association with the IALD Midwest. 70 people from the Chicago lighting and architecture communities were in attendance as two teams of emerging professional lighting designers leveraged their know-how, on-the-spot to visually transform their environments with LED light supplied by Xicato.The teams had only 90 minutes to re-work the dark, under- or unlit areas into beautifully lit spaces. A panel of judges from the IALD chose the winning team based on many aspects, some of which included creative concept, concept implementation, technical expertise, and sensitivity to site. www.xicato.com


WEMBLEY WAY


Definition Group undertook the principal lighting design role at the International Stadium Poker Tour held at Wembley Stadium, London in June 2013. Martin Pro Vipers were used to highlight the iconic Wembley roof steels whilst the inflatable domes were lit with MAC250 & MAC500 luminaires fitted with gobos featuring the sponsors’ logos. www.definitiongroup.com
