DJ LIGHT s an immersive public sound and light installation that gives visitors the power to orchestrate an awe-inspiring performance of light and sound across a large public space. It was created for energy company Endesa as the cornerstone of their Christmas celebrations in Lima, Peru. DJ Light is about the exhilaration of one person taking control over a massive space and manipulating the incredible array of light and sound within it using nothing more than their own body. It is an empowering experience where the public is invited to be the artist.

 

MATERIALS

85 giant globes of light, LED lighting.

TECHNOLOGY

The main controlling hardware and software utilised for DJ Light was made especially for the project, and combines years of on-going research and development. Suspended above the podium is a high accuracy thermal tracking camera that has been developed by Cinimod to allow for live tracking of the “guest DJ”. By tracking every movement of the person below, this camera communicates control signals to the main software programme that is responsible for the live sound and light generation.

EFFECT

The performance hoped to explore the social magnetism of light and its mysterious ability to draw strangers together.
