(PRWEB UK) 8 March 2013
It has been reported in arstechnica.com that the privately funded project was switched on at 9p.m. on Tuesday 5th March. Made up of 25,000 LEDs, the light sculpture has endured months of preparation, designed and overseen by artist Leo Villareal. The LEDs, which are attached 12 inches apart, are each individually controllable with 25 levels of brightness. Described by some as “the biggest public light sculpture in the sky,” the lights will together form an animated screen for the next two years.
Online retailer, Simple Lighting co. offers an impressive collection of LED lighting for both home and garden. The team are dedicated to researching the latest industry news and updates and were particularly impressed by this project. A representative from the firm shares their feelings on the matter.
“For years San Francisco’s Golden Gate has overshadowed its Bay Bridge, however these lights have made such an impact that it’s hard to imagine now. LEDs are so versatile that they are being used increasingly for both functional and aesthetic uses. The fact that each light is controllable and has 25 levels of brightness suggests that this project simply wouldn’t be possible with typical bulbs.
“Those who wish to take advantage of this versatility can also do so in their own homes. At Simple Lighting we have a great range of LED lights that offer a truer and brighter light than typical fluorescent bulbs and are also more ideal for dimming.”
