Enlightening Interaction of LED Technology and Art

Artists around the world are combining lighting technology, multimedia and local landscapes to attract attentions from visitors and create stunning experiences.

The iconic city building in San Francisco, Salesforce Tower has turned into the tallest public art work in the U.S. with its top six floor installed with dynamic LED light initiated by local artist, Jim CaLoosplatmpbell. The artist worked with LED Engin, which was acquired by Osram last year, using their product LZ4 RGBW flat lens emitter (LZ4-04MDC9) to design the light work “Day for Nights.”

There are over 11,000 LED pixels installed on the building to display videos, animations and most the daily motion captured by the cameras set by the artist in the city to film the movement of people. By combining red, green, blue and white LED dies in a package, the LZ4 RGBW flat lens emitter provides wide range of colors and uses the light reflected off of the building so the projection is gentler.

In Europe, a Belgium team commissioned a project called “Painting with light” by installing various UV and LED lights on facilities in theme parks to attract visitors. Their recent work just opened in an amusement park in Poland, the Bazyliszek dark ride, using UV fixture to stress the UV painting details and mixing spotlights to set up different background.

On the other side of the planet, in China, Suzhou Science and Culture Art Center in Suzhou is also famous for its cutting edge architectural lighting. Finished in 2007, the aerodynamic designed building is built next to Jingji Lake, reflecting the water and creating a picturesque view with the balance of architecture and nature.
