Part of the 'Unlimited' disability arts festival, the piece was lit with eight Philips Selecon LED PLProfile1 luminaires, chosen for their crucial colourising flexibility by lighting designer John Ford. "I chose the PLProfile1 luminaires as I knew I needed something flexible to get as many lighting options as possible into a small space, and a conventional rig can be limiting in that sense," says Ford.
