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.
