The Gateway of India in Mumbai has been transformed by a high-tech LED lighting system capable of displaying 16 million colours. Created by Philips, the system will be used to create light displays for the 5.1 million foreign tourists who visit each year, as well as Mumbai’s 12 million residents.
Wow. You know it’s not always a great match to up-light every piece of architecture. But this looks amazing.

Several focal points define the work of New York-based artist Eric Cahan. Among them: light, specifically the light generated by the sun at sunrise and sunset, science, nature, and the ephemeral quality of memories. These considerations are in play when, equipment in tow, Cahan heads outside at a carefully chosen hour of morning or evening to begin creating one of his flawless, ethereal works of art. Cahan himself made most of the work for his current project, Sky Series, during his extensive travels. Each photograph and sculpture is titled with the time and location of its conception. In this way, Cahan catalogues his visual journal. “ During my travels, I discover what I want to document. My works are titled to remind me of the experience, both visually and spiritually.” Cahan’s viewers see in his work his unique interpretation of a specific time and place. Please visit artist’s website or follow his Tumblrfor more work and inspiration.

As any LD an they can tell you what 5 colors they use without fail. Well now they can track their history of color usage and research alternate hues. Pretty Awesome.

Red, Green and Blue are three installations by Canadian/UK artist, David Spriggs that continue the artist’s exploration of the physicality and spatial perception of colour. In his work, Spriggs examines the particular symbolic, perceptual, social, political, and historical connotations attached to individual colours.

This post got a lot of attention earlier in the year. Lighting is a critical component to how our wall colors are perceived. This post is a little experiment I ran to prove how deeply light affects paint colors.
