Lighting the Locomotives – National Railway Museum

Lighting the Locomotives is a Teamwork Triumph at National Railway Museum The Great Hall at the National Railway Museum at York was the singularly impressive location for the 7th annual ‘Locos in a Different Light’ competition. Sponsored jointly by Ambersphere Solutions and Pulsar Light of Cambridge, the aim is to challenge six teams of students from different colleges across the UK who are studying technical lighting at Further and Higher education levels, to each light one of the iconic locomotives in the Museum’s Great Hall. Each team is given a selection of lighting fixtures, an MA dot2 console and two hours to rig and programme their chosen design. Even for those not smitten by the sight and smell of these gigantic engines, there can be no doubting the very real challenge of successfully illuminating one of these heaving beasts of yesteryear. With a limited number of fixtures and with some of the locomotives up to sixty metres in length, not to mention being a 3600 canvas

Colour your City with Light

“Colour Your City with Light” For the fourth year running Pulsar Light is proud to be a part of e-Luminate Festival Cambridge 2016. Last year’s event saw Pulsar illuminating the Fitzwilliam Museum with great effect. This year, Pulsar's very own Snowy Johnson in collaboration with lighting designer Susie Olczak had the task of illuminating the Senate House and the adjacent Old Schools with the installation being handled by Hawthorn. Susie’s brief was to create a light experience, which the public could interact with whilst viewing the impressive Senate House. This was achieved by creating environment chases and linking them to a control panel which allowed passers by to engage in the spectacle and feel even more a part of the festival of light. Susie created a low energy interactive light installation using Pulsar equipment to illuminate the façade of Senate House. This interactive installation used complementary colours while challenging the audience to make choices

Light Experiment with e-Luminate

In October 2015, the e-Luminate Foundation team invited distinguished guests to take part in an experiment to prove whether lighting conditions influence our perception of wine. Recreating a 2009 German experiment reported in the Journal of Sensory Perception, e-Luminate worked with the Cambridgeshire Wine School to create an immersive sensory experience for all. The wines were kindly sponsored by Bosca (www.bosca.it), whilst the lighting effects were provided by Pulsar (www.pulsarlight.com). We are very grateful to bot for their contribution. A special thanks to Gonville and Caius College (www.cai.cam.ac.uk) for giving us access to the stunning Fellows' Dining Room to run this unique event. Click ( HERE ) to watch a short video online.
