Selecon Supports Ingo Bracke at Rocklights at the Sydney Smart Light Festival 2009

From the 26th May to the 14th June 2009 Sydney hosted a unique new public festival that transformed the Australian city into a spectacular living canvas through light art, music and ideas events. Smart Light Sydney delivered an array of dynamic light sculptures as part of the Light Walk, a free, self-guided pedestrian route around the city's harbour precinct from Observatory Hill through The Rocks, around Circular Quay to Sydney Opera House.

Ingo Bracke is a German installation artist and stage designer who has won numerous grants and awards in Europe for his artworks, proposals and research projects. His creations have been acquired by several public collections in Germany and his art light projection work, Rocklights which illuminated the underside of the road tunnel running through the iconic Argyle Cut in the heart of the Rocks was installation number 8 along the Light Walk.

So, what was Smart about it? The clever design and projection ensured no spill light into the night sky for a highly dramatic effect.

To realise his vision Ingo utilised only Selecon luminaires: 12x Pacific Zoomspots (6x Pacific 26-50 and 6x Pacific 45-75 Zoomspots); 9 with 800W lamps, 3 with MSR 575 lamps / power supplies and 1x CDM 250 lamp / power supply loaned by local Selecon dealer, Herkes Pro Lighting.

Photographs supplied by Ingo Bracke.

Also sponsored by Selecon was Ingo's interpretive installation „IchWeißNichtWasSollEs" whereby the famous Loreley Rock (Germany) was transformed into an artistic experience during the LUMINALE Festival of Light in 2008.
