Field Of Light

From 23 to 26 October the atrium at Millennium Point, Birmingham, will be covered in a Field of Light – with 120 fabulously coloured, energy-efficient glow lights. However, UKType have made it worldwide so you don’t have to be in Birmingham to experience the Field as there will be a web-cam so you’ll be able to watch it anytime a day through via the internet. The Field is also fully interactive so you can control what the Field does. There is a website with a really simple sequencer that will allow you to programme how the lights react. Before the website goes public UKType are looking for a few people to test it out and to see what they think.
If this sounds interesting, simply go to http://www.fieldoflight.net/home.aspx and register yourself with the site. Then if you fancy it go to the sequencer page where you can create your own light sequence.
