NVA’s extraordinary public art performance Speed of Light, brought The Quays in Salford to life in March 2013.
A centrepiece of the Edinburgh International Festival and recently staged in the docklands of Yokohama in Japan, the night-time work combines light, intentional movement and sound changing the way we perceive about a chosen environment.
Hundreds of runners in specially commissioned LED light suits animated beautiful, choreographed patterns of light flowing through key parts of The Quays including canal banks, bridges and public spaces around The Lowry, the Imperial War Museum North, MediaCityUK and BBC North.
Over 8,000 people from Greater Manchester and beyond came to witness abstract art written on the grandest scale: a work that can be simultaneously monumental and intimate.
This is Cinimod Studio's maddest, biggest and most daring lighting performance ever. Commissioned for the launch of the Xbox Halo 4 game, we created a giant Halo Glyph that flew over London. The stats were pretty impressive (15m diameter, 3.2 tons, 20kw of orange LED), making it the biggest illuminated structure to ever fly over a capital city.

In commission by Urban Alliance I designed the interaction for the Bijlmer Moodwall. The wall is situated in a pedestrian tunnel in the Amsterdam South East district and interacts with people passing by.
Based on the workings of the E4 MotionWall, I created low resolution color patterns to accompany the people. For the Open Source art route I developed particle based little creatures responding capri-ciously to all movement in the tunnel.
The Moodwall is designed by Jasper Klinkhamer in collaboration with Remco Wilcke, who is also responsible for the construction. Hans van Helden and Matthijs ten Berge of Illuminate are responsible for getting me involved with the project.
Moment Factory (momentfactory.com) developed the interactive system and designed the interactive content.
PHOTONIC Dreams (photonicdreams.com) created the original LED video wall of La Vitrine, in Montreal.
The installation includes tracking devices and low-resolution LED displays and is capable of showing many different visualizations based on the presence and movement of people.

Visitors can interact with the installation every night from 7 PM to 11 PM.
