Light IQ win ‘Peer Prize’ at Ready Steady Light!
The Light IQ team are over the moon to have been selected as winners of this year’s Ready Steady Light competition, held annually by the Society of Light and Lighting in collaboration with Rose Bruford College at their beautiful grounds in Sidcup.
The Peer prize is one of three awards given out at the end of an evening of on-the-fly lighting design in which 17 teams are given an area to light with a set of lighting instruments picked at random. The teams have only 3 hours to create the best lighting scheme using the lights they are given.
Choosing to go against the grain, our team decided that ‘less is more’ would form the philosophy for their design, and so chose to focus on a small, key area. Experimenting with the combining of different fittings to create a blended light effect they were able to make a fire-like piece in which red gradually faded into a warm amber glow with a hot white beam of light forming at the centre.
The finished work was christened, 'Fire at The Gasworks' (it is traditional that all entrants give their piece a title) due to the industrial pipework and machinery visible through the window which was cunningly back-lit by a sneakily placed spotlight!
