A Light Show Becomes Art

Moving Rainbows

Welcome to the light art video gallery

This light art video gallery shows an ongoing evolution. From it’s inception, the Rainbow in the Dark has never stood still. Out of all the mediums I work in, I find light to be the most captivating and rewarding. For creating a rich, colour filled ambience as well as audience engagement, light has a significant role to play. Skilled light art can – and often does – make a festival or event unforgettable.

Building rainbows - the evolution of my light art

The continuing evolution of Rainbow in the Dark cannot be overstated. The overlapping geometry that plays and morphs within the installation is continually developing; as is the equipment used to deliver it. Light art has captured my imagination, which in turn  fires my creative ambition. All of it serves to keep the experience constantly fresh and new.

At it’s creative core is a simple scientific principle; from simple rules complex behaviour arises. Playing with those rules and seeing what  surprises are in store is a constant source of inspiration and delight.

And the experience isn’t just confined to the rainbow and it’s mandala driven contents. Any object in the environment – be it a tree or adjacent architecture – is used as a screen to reflect different lighting effects possible with my extensive range of equipment and experience. Making the mundane light up with colour and effects helps us see it with fresh eyes – and that is where so much of the magic lays.

Although a light art video gallery is helpful, it can’t fully convey the unique and unforgettable live experience itself.
