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.

Tumblr Artist

Eric Cahan | on Tumblr (USA) - Sky Series

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.

My dance project was an experiment in Discovering Color. This installation takes the idea about 14 levels higher. 


Stratachromes David Spriggs

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. All the installations shown are acrylic on layered transparent film, for more detail about each installation visit the artists’ website.
