The past few nights I’ve noticed some rather bright lights beaming into my condo from across the city. Last night I stayed up and pulled out the camera. I caught some amazing shots of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and his team programming the final looks of Vectorial Elevation. Click the image and check out our flickr page for more shots.
Over the next week we will be releasing some lighting projects that we have finished leading up to the 2010 games. Check back often to see the latest and coolest light art around the city.
Everyday now you start noticing lighting projects popping up around Vancouver. Last week the Eos team finished installing “The Words don’t fit the Picture,” by Vancouver artist Ron Terada. Adjacent to the iconic Public Library off Robson Street, the LED lit art changes color and draws out pedestrians camera’s in droves. The Eos team worked closely with Ron to construct and implement his design as he envisioned. Check out the link below to vancouverisawesome.com for more pictures.

The buzz is growing! The world’s largest telescope, nick-named the “Thirty Meter Telescope” is in the design process,and Eos Lightmedia has been selected as the Lighting Designer for this amazing project. Working directly with the industrial designers, Dynamic Structures, the Eos team has the unique challenge to light this massive structure. With the sensitivity required to illuminate the working space of the scientists while keeping the light away from the telescope optics, our team has the unique challenge of directing and focusing light to specific areas. Additionally, low heat output from the luminaires is required to regulate the temperature of the space. Our team is excited and proud to be apart of such a prestigious project.

Vancouver first Lighting Festival was a huge success! Over 20,000 people within the first hour of opening passed through the streets of ILLUMINATE Yaletown. Over 1400 photo’s were entered in the flickr photo contest. Thank you to all the business and exhibitors who volunteered their spaces and time to build the art culture in Vancouver.
The Eos Lightmedia team had 4 primary exhibits. The above picture shows off our Digital Graffiti project on the fabulous Opus Hotel. A 42” touchscreen LCD TV allowed young and old alike to finger-paint their designs on the 9 story building. At MINI Yaletown we lit up 10 of their hot new cars and hooked it up to a keyboard for the public to compose their own lighting masterpiece.
We’re already in the works of planning the 2nd Annual ILLUMINATE Yaletown Event in 2010 so if you missed it this year, you’ll get another chance. This event is sure to become a Vancouver tradition.
Special thanks to the Yaletown Business Improvement Association for producing this incredible event. For more pictures, check out the flickr page.
