Adaptable To Your Needs

Make THE LIGHT part of any occasion. Simply change the colour and film displayed on the surface of the globe with the touch of a button.

Light & Colour

Inside the globe are over 80 metres of LED’s. These illuminate the installation and are split into 32 individual sections which are controlled separately. This allows for different colours to be used on different parts of the globe.

Film & Projections

In addition, there is also space for 4 projectors inside the globe. These are individual controllable allowing for different film to be played on each side of the globe.

The projectors can be angled remotely for the best viewing angle. Film clips can also be uploaded while the globe is installed meaning that the content can be changed.

Projections in The Light Installation

With this wide range of options, the globe can be used to adapt to various different scenarios. It’s easy to create a gentle pulse of light to relax visitors, project your business logo up as the centrepiece to your next corporate gala event, or create an eye-catching display of colour to inspire your audience.

All of the LED’s and Projectors are controllable wirelessly by the standard lighting protocol DMX. This means that the globe can be synchronised with other lighting & music to create a single immersive display.

However you imagine the globe being used, we’ll be on hand to help.

"Darkness To Light"

In Romsey the globe focused on highlighting issues surrounding Mental Health.

The installation in Romsey Abbey lasted for five weeks from January 2017 to February 2017. During that time, the globe was used for the various services and events in the Abbey.

The theme that the Abbey were looking to promote was Mental Health. As a result, a lot of work was done around the theme of Darkness to Light including production of short films highlighting specific issues.

Local charity Triangulate organised an evening in partnership with the NHS where business owners from across the south of England were invited to view films projected onto the globe.

To launch the installation, Songs Of The Light included over 250 local singers who performed underneath the globe with artist Richard McLester.
