PAINTING WITH LIGHT
The Jewish Museum celebrated Purim at the Waldorf Astoria Ballroom in New York City with a spectacular lighting effect thanks to Levy Lighting. The design was created to honour French painter Edouard Vuil- lard whose art work will be featured in the Museum’s upcoming exhibit. In conjunction with Israeli artist Izhar Patkin, Levy Lighting was able to recreate the texture and move- ment present in Vuillard’s work. The team
projected and overlapped organic pat- terns onto every surface. The lighting was programmed to slowly fade so the room felt like it was ‘breathing’. The effect was cre- ated with over 70 ellipsoidals, each with a tight organic branch template covering the ceiling, walls and floor.
“It felt like a slow dance of lights that en- veloped the guests” said Ira Levy of Levy Lighting. www.levylighting.com
