New Lighting Concept for The Marque in Cambridge, UK
Proposal for Future City

Shortlisted by Future City, a leading UK cultural placemaking agency, Creatmosphere proposed a new lighting concept called 'Light  Skins' to respond to the different architectural layers of a building, For the Marque building, this incorporated the screens, outside architectural walls, windows and communal spaces. Exploring the relationship between the different layers from a night-time perspective, the scheme showcased the building as a living organism, where a dynamic lighting would highlight the presence and activities of people in and around it. As a result, light and motion interact and transform the building into an active and ever-changing architectural living space.

Colour Waves
Commissioned by Bloomberg

Colour Waves is an interactive light work consisting of 26 waves of light cascading down the side of Bloomberg’s recycling facilities in Silvertown, East London. The installation explores the colour spectrum in light, where viewers will be able to see an exterior projection of bold stripes of colour that are dynamically triggered by the motion of the Docklands Light Railway which passes by very close to the site. The notions of giving and receiving and traveling to and from inform this work which builds in intensity and movement as a result of activity on the DLR.

Commuters traveling between West Silvertown and Pontoon Dock on the DLR will be able to appreciate waves of coloured light that interact with the speed and motion of the train. The patterns created will be dynamically generated transforming the building in unexpected ways.

Breathing Trees #3
Art-ort Festival 2010, Heidelberg, Germany

Creatmopshere delivered the ‘Water Garden’ and ‘Hafentor’, a large-scale light and sound project for the Artort Festival produced by Unterwegstheatre Company.

Creatmosphere brought awareness to the Bow River through a series of river-based installations along a 7.5km stretch of water as part of 'Celebration of the Bow RIver' festival.

‘Sources’ consisted of a ‘Light Matrix’ of 28 spheres on a lagoon that created patterns of colour and light mapped to data gathered on the flow, quality, demand and water cycle of the Bow River. ‘Daylight Spheres’ were also clustered on the peripheries of some islands and a ‘River of Light,’ a large-scale lighting installation along the 7.5km stretch of 500 free-floating spheres. Watched by thousands of people, pixels of coloured light emphasised the rivers flow, beautifully mapping the river at night.
