In the middle of June in Sydney the Vivid lighting festival starts. This unique festival is interesting for tourists and local people and has a big impact on the whole city. Vivid Light transforms Sydney into a wonderland of ‘light art’ sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections. All lighting objects are available for free.
This article is about an art object with the name “Sweep”. The Sweep object is very interesting because it uses dynamic lighting, original form and deep meditation idea. LEDs are controllable and located inside one hundred acrylic tubes standing four meters tall. When viewed from a distance this object provides the illusion of flying light with softly pulsing light and slowly moving tubes from the breeze.
Everything changes if you come closer and walking through the Sweep you will feel a sense of deep mediation as the large individual lights move softly and gracefully above and around them. You will be relaxing after Sweep and get into good mood because dynamic lighting has a gently calming effect.
Fashion is the way to demonstrate our individuality to the world. It is about being creative and different. Technological influences are growing more apparent in the fashion industry. Advances and new developments are shaping and creating current and future trends. Developments, such as wearable LED lights technology, have become an important trend in fashion and soon will enter into our live.
Controllers are getting smaller and it is possible now to create small but robust systems which are suitable for commercial use. Ideas, which were implemented by LED DIY enthusiasts only, now are making their way to world class fashion shows.
Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015, with Behati Prinsloo walking down the runway wearing LED fireworks costume, is a good example. Continue reading →
Decorative lighting accentuates the beauty of the city at night and creates a wonderful, celebratory mood. Ventspils is a Latvian capital of flowers, fountains, and decorative lighting; all over the city, you can find colorful cow sculptures, squares, and courtyards are decorated with flower sculptures, fountains with lighting, and tastefully arranged flowerbeds, decorative lighting stairs in the park, seats with lighting on at an open-air stage, and dynamic lighting on a drawbridge (opened in 2011). And now I want to introduce you to the new, dynamic lighting object “Waves” that was opened on October 24, 2015. The “Waves” lighting installation located in Ventspils (3 Kr. Valdemara street) at the Ostas Street promenade (or Ventmala) beginning.

This lighting installation works only after dark and displays dynamic lighting waves with a smooth, dynamic color change. This object is interesting because the lighting can be controlled remotely from an iOS device or PC. Of course, this possibility is only provided to authorized staff. Dynamic decorative objects are equally popular for tourists and locals. The lighting attracts attention and has a major, positive impact on the city representation and recognizability.
Roof terraces are one of the dreams of Modernist architecture and today we are talking about decorating roof terrace in high tech architectural style. The terrace offers a magnificent view of the city and the park. The city lights produce a soothing effect that is so badly needed after a long day at work. But how to make the terrace lighting more alive and aligned with our mood?
We used high brightness LED strip (individually controlled) lights hidden under the eaves. During the day, the lights are off and are not visible. When the night comes, the entire perimeter of the terrace is softly lit with controllable LED’s, creating a cozy ambiance.

You can use a computer or Wi-Fi enabled phone to control the lighting. Alternatively, you can hang a Tablet PC on a wall to control the lighting when your computer or phone is not around.
