Kennett Square: Longwood Gardens & Bruce Munro

I kept getting emails for the temporary lighting installation at Longwood Gardens but was putting it off for one reason or another.  Finally, realizing it was ending in a week, I reserved tickets for a Saturday night to take it all in.  The weather was perfect when I left my house but by the time I got to Longwood, the dark clouds had rolled in and it started to pour.  I waited it out and when there was a break, I managed to catch some of the installation.  Unfortunately, I only got about 20 minutes before the rain was back.  Below are a few of the shots from Bruce Munro's installation.

Philadelphia: Open Air Lighting Installation - Part 1

So, I am long overdue for a blog post... I have plenty of photos, just haven't made the time to get them uploaded.  I was flying back from Dallas tonight and saw that a second night of aiming/focusing was happening along the Parkway for the upcoming Open Air installation.  The kinetic art installation will be unveiled on September 20th and run for a few weeks.  The artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer has the Xenon searchlights tied to a digital interface to make the installation interactive with the public, using a mobile app.  Once unveiled, I plan to do another photoshoot from some better locations.  I hope to have a Part 2.  Of course, as a lighting designer, I had to run up to my roof to grab a few quick shots of the aiming.  These aren't the greatest but a teaser for the installation to come.
