Lighting up the V&A for the 2012 London Design Festival

Mark Roberts Motion Control was recently involved with Cinimod studios and their interactive lighting design project “Walk the Light”. Commissioned as part of London Design Festival 2012 the entrance walkway to the V&A Museum was bathed in colour that reacted to the movements of the people walking through the tunnel of light. The whole effect relied heavily on a modified version of the MRMC Monorail Slider with 9 metres of rail hanging from the ceiling. Travelling at up to 5 feet per second and using heat sensors, the monorail carriage carrying lights, would follow the public walking through the tunnel and interact to their changes in speed and direction.

When asked about his design by London Design Festival Dominic Harris said, “THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE ARE PHYSICALLY MOVING LIGHT FIXTURES BY THERMAL CAMERA CONTROL AND IT’S EXCITING TO SEE HOW THE V&A VISITORS WILL REACT TO BEING SO PIVOTAL WITHIN THIS LIGHTING EXPERIMENT” Dominic Harris, Cinimod Studio
