This illuminated arch rises up out of the water and surrounds a foot bridge in Austin, Texas
East Side Collective, a co-working design studio featuring co-founder Tim Derrington and member Wilson Hanks, along with Drophouse Design have recently worked together to create a temporary installation as part of the Waller Creek Conservancy’s “Creek Show“, in Austin, Texas.

“Deep Curiosity” is an illuminated arch that rises up out of the water and surrounds a foot bridge over the Waller Creek to create the illusion of a never ending circle that inspires imaginative thought and an appreciation for both the natural and man-made elements found in and around the same area.

The light installation is made from strips of curved steel that have been welded and formed into a curved arch.

The arch is made up of sections that were constructed in a warehouse and were later assembled on site in the water and above the bridge.

The partially submerged circular form combines reality with the power of illusion to encourage people to think about and appreciate the complexity of the creek and celebrate the possibility of future perfection in the Waller Creek area.

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything
A heady synthesis of modern technology, Buddhist philosophy and visceral experience, Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything open at the MCA. Tatsuo Miyajima is one of Japan’s most renowned contemporary artists, known for his sculptures and room-scale installations incorporating light and numbers.

58a39f79a9ab7_lightinstallationsart-TatsuoMiyajima-ConnectwithEverything02.thumb.jpg.eda19ff4fa0188b1ad3e7dda1666513c.jpg58a39f7abb11b_lightinstallationsart-TatsuoMiyajima-ConnectwithEverything03.thumb.jpg.21cd5eb1ac4e8afb96fbafdd60c150f0.jpg58a39f7b3fd71_lightinstallationsart-TatsuoMiyajima-ConnectwithEverything06.thumb.jpg.21a25e563e4401f9b30d2b8eae4c9962.jpg58a39f7b76bb5_lightinstallationsart-TatsuoMiyajima-ConnectwithEverything07.jpg.72f456c7e3635c83f776cd30d413598d.jpg58a39f7bb1820_lightinstallationsart-TatsuoMiyajima-ConnectwithEverything08.jpg.eba4ce5a0832f26da216ae1f77feb20a.jpg

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything is Miyajima’s first exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere. It encompasses his sculptural works, rooms and environments, and performance videos.

Time and its passage are explored through the works and represented visually by multiple, small digital counting devices. Miyajima developed his first customised digital counters in the late 1980s, using light emitting diodes or LEDs. These ‘counter gadgets’ remain central to his art today, their red and green palette expanding in the mid-1990s to include blue, then white, as LED technology developed in and beyond Japan.

Greenhouse. Amsterdam Light Festival 2016/2017
Greenhouse is an art project specially made for Amsterdam Light Festival 2016/ 2017. It is indeed a greenhouse, but fitted with uranium glass. this material has the quality of being transparent in normal light, but when hit by uv light it starts to beam radiant green light of its own. The artwork was made by Dutch artist Victor Engbers, together with SIO2glas and Hotmarks.

Look through #ABSOLUTNIGHTS
Look Through is an interactive lighting object inspired in diamond-alike shapes and designed to foster unexpected encounters. This "lighting iceberg" is sensitive to the surrounding music (seamlessly changing its color) and the touch of people. Moreover, when two people touch the iceberg from both sides it became transparent, provoking a surprising encounter. All lighting control has been done with ProtoPixel Create and one ProtoPixel controller. This project was designed by ProtoPixel for #ABSOLUTNIGHTS in Barcelona, Spain.

Light maze for Luneng Sanya Bay Light and Art Festival
yǔzhòu is an immersive light installation we were commissioned for the newly created Luneng Sanya Bay Light and Art Festival in Hainan, China.
The installation consists of a maze based on a triangular geometry and built of 2,5m high panels of acrylic glass. A dichroic film glued to one side of the acrylic glass converts the panels in semi-transparent and reflects or shifts the light rays along the entire colour range of a rainbow while the spectator moves in the installation.

On the other side of each acrylic glass sheet, a specifically created pattern of grooves is mechanically carved in. The grooves are illuminated by powerful LED rails with subtly shifting colours located in the inferior and superior framework. The panels on the outer perimeter are provided with a mirror film converting the interior in an infinity room – a unique cosmos of overlapping light patterns and constantly

Commissioned for Newcastle Gateshead Initiative's Enchanted Parks 2016, Storm is Output Arts' most ambitious audiovisual installation to date: constructed from 108 separate triangular panels with a total of 4320 LEDs, 335 metres of cabling and a dozen computers. The event saw 30,000 visitors across six nights.
Storm uses a recording of a thunderstorm from the British Library Sound Archive, contributed by wildlife sound recordist Simon Elliot; Output Arts are grateful for his kind assistance.

CLUSTER it's a real-time interactive Light and Sound installation made by Playmodes Studio

Cluster is an immersive audiovisual site-specific installation that explores relationships between space, time and perception. Geometric schematization of architecture using light instruments transforms the space into a container for the abstract language of light and sound.

The audiovisual discourse generated in real time using software created by Playmodes, researches the possibilities of formal clusters of oscillators applied to the control of light, sound and atonality to the limits of synaesthetic perception.

Brainrave is an interactive audiovisual installation
BRAINRAVE BY LATE INTERACTIVE
Brainrave is an interactive audiovisual installation which lets you control generative music and visuals using your brain alone. Boasting almost 4,000 addressable RGB LEDs, Brainrave seeks to demystify Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) and make something that seems like science fiction become science fact.

58b00c7e7be7a_interactiveaudiovisualartinstallationinteractiveledinstallationinteractiveinstallationartinteractiveinstallationsinteractivelightinstallationart.png.0d3cf318c0cb19fe616cf5245895da90.png58b00c7f8d71b_interactiveledinstallationinteractiveinstallationartinteractiveinstallationsinteractiv-activelightinstallationsinteractivekineticlightinstallation.png.874517832401dcdf1ca9da6ecbe715e8.png

When you wear the EEG headset, an algorithm processes the raw EEG waves into meaningful data, in this case the level of concentration/relaxation. The installation includes a concentration meter in the form of an LED ring which helps you control your concentration better. In order to raise the concentration level, you can focus on the meter, perform complex mathematics in your head or simply focus really hard on one thought. On the other hand, relaxation can be achieved by closing your eyes, letting your muscles loose and zoning out the surrounding environment.

This attention level extracted from the headset is then used to manipulate and generate music and visuals through software programmed specifically for this installation. The resulting music is then blasted from a PA system and the visuals are displayed onto the huge array of LEDs for everyone to enjoy... that is until you take off the headset. 

Brainrave is suited for all audiences. We aim to tour music, light, science and art festivals with it as well as schools and hospitals.

Brainrave was originally commissioned by Science in the City, Malta in September 2016.

Ken Burns Bridge
Located over a lake that teems with swimmers and boaters during the summer, the Ken Burns Bridge can be viewed by motorists, boaters, swimmers and residents around the lake. Elegant, curved arches are enhanced with color-changing light below deck, while above deck, four 50' tall sail-shaped gateways become color-changing nighttime icons, celebrating holidays, seasons, sports victories and special events.  The bridge opened to great acclaim, winning the hearts of residents and becoming a local landmark. In addition to the pre-programmed events, the lighting has been used to express solidarity with France after the terrorist attacks there and to mourn Prince's untimely death.

Transparent during the day and visible from all angles at night, the gateway sails welcome motorists and pedestrians to the City of Worcester and Town of Shrewsbury.

By way of a custom user interface and pre-programmed events, the owner can create both static and kinetic color-changing events.

SGM_Light    2

For the long-awaited inauguration of the Elbphilharmonie concert hall located on the harbour-side in Hamburg, a massive light and video setup was installed. It all culminated with a spectacular show in the evening of January 11. As a crucial part of this show, no less than 500 pcs. of P-5 and P-2 wash lights from SGM were applied.

Hamburg’s new concert hall is one of the largest and most acoustically advanced in the world. It is popularly nicknamed Elphi. The 108 metres/354 ft. tall building consist of two sections. The new glassy construction resembles a hoisted sail, water wave or quartz crystal, which is constructed on top of an old warehouse building. A terrace placed in middle, ties the new and the old sections together. This is where most of the P-5s were installed. Furthermore, all balconies on the upper part were also equipped with P-5s.

The overall concept was thought-out by the global agency, Jung von Matt. Their task was to visualise the concert taking place inside the opera house on the outside of the building in real-time. Jerry Appelt was the responsible Lighting Designer that ensured that the light was synchronized with the music and video content displayed on the bottom part of the building.

All lighting was supplied by PRG and their Account Manager for the event, Michael Casper, here explains why they chose to apply P-5s and P-2s over other wash lights for this event:

"They are water resistant, bright and reliable – that's why we have a lot of them. They absolutely live up to all our expectations. The role of the P-5s and P-2s was to bathe the new part of the building in deeply saturated colors, changing dynamically in time with the music. They certainly delivered that - and even more.” 

The result of all the different elements coming together as whole, truly was a breathtaking experience.
