  1. The world's first guitar-shaped hotel rocked its grand opening in Hollywood, FL - rising 450' into the air with an integrated video lighting system DCL incorporated into the custom facade. The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is a 34-story destination masterpiece designed by Klai Juba Wald Architecture & Interiors. Outfitted with nearly 30,000 linear feet of programmable LEDs provided by SACO that wrap the building and conform to contoured exterior. The vertical guitar strings on the building extend into the night sky with rooftop light cannons that can be seen for miles - making the hotel an experiential centerpiece and an illuminated architectural beacon for South Florida. This robust show control system was developed by Float4 using Realmotion servers and creative programming to enable sound responsive animations that display across this 10,000 pixel wide canvas, in real-time Hard Rock fashion. DCL developed, engineered, managed, built, installed and lead the programming of the media facade with the help of our partners. Thank you to SACO for their LED video lighting technology, Float4 for creative content, software & programming, ASG for their industrial rope access, RealMotion media servers with ISAAC for their show control systems, and finally Wild Dogs International as a creative event consultant. This project would not have been a success without your dedication to a collaborative process and working in concert with Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, general contractor Suffolk Construction, and engineering from Giovanetti Shulman Associates and ARUP.
  2. The Effect Of Coloured Light On The Human Body Artists and interior architects have long understood that colours can affect our feelings, emotions and mood. This is why the rooms in a hospital are often green – green calms and reduces stress. Other colours such as red, orange, yellow, blue, etc., have a different effect on the body. Chromotherapy, a.k.a. colour therapy studies these effects. Chromotherapy or colour therapy is based on the premise that colours and light can be used to correct physical ailments. Depending on the location and nature of the ailment a specific colour may ease it. One of the first scientists to consider the effect of colours was August Pleasonton. In 1876 he published ‘The Influence of the Blue Ray of Sunlight and of the Blue Color of the Sky’ in which he studied how blue can stimulate the growth of plants and cattle. He also mentioned that this colour can help make the human body better. This book introduced chromotherapy into modern medicine. Colour therapy should not be confused with light therapy. In light therapy a person is exposed to a bright white light over a certain time. Light therapy is often used to treat skin diseases (more specifically psoriasis), sleep disorders and certain psychic problems. Colours and their meaning Studies have shown that people are able to distinguish approximately 10 million colours. These colours can be broken down into three primary colours: yellow, red and blue. Usually in chromotherapy, the secondary colours are added, more specifically orange, purple and green. Each of these colours has a certain meaning: Red – The libido booster Red is a warm colour linked to the kidneys, backbone and sense of smell. This colour gives more energy and is ideal for people who are often over-tired. Active people can use red light therapy to combat muscle and joint stiffness. And finally it also boosts sexual desires. Yellow – The depression killer People with a difficult digestion can treat this with yellow light. This colour is associated with the stomach, liver and intestines. People with a depression could also benefit from yellow colour therapy. Blue – The bringer of peace Blue is the counterpart of red. It can be used to lower high blood pressure or calm people down. Blue light can also help in the treatment of migraine. Your throat, ears and mouth are linked to this colour. Green – The strength provider Green is the colour of nature. Green light therapy stimulates the creation of growth hormones and strengthens muscles, bones and other tissues. It can also boost your body’s immune system. Purple – The Nightcap Purple light can help you fall asleep. It also reduces emotional and mental stress. The nervous system and eyes are linked with this secondary colour. Contrary to red light, purple light decreases sexual desires. Orange – The creativity source Does your job demand a lot of creativity? Then orange can help. Orange stimulates the creative thought process and helps you come up with new ideas. This colour is linked to breathing. Breastfeeding women could benefit from orange light because it stimulates the production of breast milk. Coloured lighting cannot only create a certain atmosphere, it also affects our body. Source: dmlights
