Locos in a Different Light 2016
“Locos in a Different Light – 2016”
Taking place within the great hall of the National Railway Museum in York, Locos in a Different Light aims to challenge students studying the fields of technical lighting, lighting design and associated practices. Having run for eight years, the event draws students from several different colleges.
Tasked with visually transforming and enhancing the hall and locomotives within the museum, the students were provided with some of the latest lighting and control technology products, offered by Ambersphere Solutions and Pulsar.
Pulsar sales director Dave Cowan was highly impressed with the outcome of the event. “We are so pleased to assist performing Arts students and alike and find this is a very fitting event for them to learn what can be achieved when using light, control and effect. Using a combination of fixtures from both Pulsar and Ambersphere Solutions, this will help many students progress and go on to bigger and brighter careers in many varying disciplines of light and light applications, which in turn benefits all of us in our industry.”
Locos in a Different Light takes place as part of the Illuminating York festival. With over six thousand visitors at the National Railway Museum, the students did a fantastic job contributing to the wider event. Large-scale projects like these give the students an excellent experience working with new lighting equipment supplied by Pulsar and Ambersphere, helping to develop new skills in installation and lighting design.
