Lights, and cameras

Ever wish you could control the lights in a council building? Leave Mike Whitby scrabbling around for loo roll in the dark? Well you can’t.

You can, however, play with ‘Field of Light‘ an installation that’s going to be in the “atrium” (foyer?) of Millennium Point as part of the Hello Digital thingumy (that gets more obsessed with Hereford whenever I see a blog post of theirs).

Field Of Light

Seems there are hundreds of lights that you can control over the web with the ‘light synthesizer’ that’s on the website — it looks like it could be very smart despite the site’s attempt to dull it up with words like “communal space” “bespoke website” and “illuminated public urban space”.

Ta to Fused for the tip off.

Elsewhere on the digital festival front, it appears that we’ve been remiss in mentioning Flim Dash – a 48 hour challenge to make a digital film, over the 17th to 19th October. It’s being run by Chris Unitt, who may have mentioned it on Created in Birmingham so you should all know about it already ;)

    Hoorah! Thanks for the Film Dash mention. The teams have started registering which is making it all a tad real. You up to anything that weekend? I reckon you could create something very special.
