100 Watt Challenge 2014
Lighting Competition

The lighting of any artwork is always an enjoyable experience and this particular sculpture was great fun to illuminate. The idea of providing completely different lit effects at the touch of a button was formulated early in the design process and a series of techniques were established.

The sculpture is backlit from a floor-mounted fixture providing a silhouetted form, front lit from a narrow beam recessed downlight in the ceiling and further revealed with candles around its base. In addition on party nights an oil wheel projector replaces the normal backlighting to create a coloured dynamic. Each component can be used individually or in combination, that together with the dimming provide an infinite number of potential lighting scenarios.
