creating precision light and control


To enable these ambitious temporary light installations we developed an extremely rugged and accurate beam shaping RGB fitting the JAL-MIDI-RGB. The power for the installations was provided by trailer mounted wind turbines that Duncan designed and fabricated.
Over the winter of 2009/10 we created a series of temporary, community-led light works across the Shetland islands. Involving the local community in choosing the sites, these temporary installations tested our ability to adapt and problem solve in all the extremes of Shetland weather. From the beginning the goal was to develop a light language that the local community would be linked to as a permanent light based artwork in and around Mareel, the new arts venue in Lerwick.
Complimenting the external works we also developed a dimmable white profile system the JAL-MIDI-W.
