Light Cast

St. Katherine Docks, London



In 2014 we were approached by the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) to develop a guerilla lighting installation for their global “Chase The Dark” event which was sponsored by ACDC. We were to represent the London design studio entry and were provided with 1000 LED ice cubes to play with. Our brief: to come up with a symbolic lighting art piece for London. It was a fresh and exciting challenge to work with such a limited budget and to see what we could create. We focused on the root properties of an LED ice cube; their waterproof design and capacity to float on water. Our response was the birth of Light Cast; a floating art piece comprised of 1,000 LED ice cubes threaded to a net which we could cast out to sea with any message programmed in.
