Forest of Light in Descanso Gardens in L A, California, was a beautiful display of nature and light intertwining to create an experience that visitors of all ages could appreciate. This walk-through art piece was installed for a limited time during the holiday season from November 2016 to January 2017.
Lighting Designer, Chris Medvitz, chose to install SGM’s in order to create the drama and saturated colour quality he desired for this project. Medvitz praised the G-spot fixtures for its reliability and durability. "This is the first robust, full-featured moving head fixture that is outdoor-rated to hit the marketplace. After looking at its performance in the mockup, we were also sold on its ability to deliver on the design concept”.
Another selling point for Medvitz was the additive colour mixing,
"We wanted guests to be able to manipulate the colour of the lights – and of course if you invite kids to punch a button, they are really going to punch the button! A subtractive mixing system would’ve been more likely to break when being abused for 5 hours a night, 45 nights in a row.”
When asked what his overall impression has been about the show and the fixture, he stated, "We’ve been really impressed with the G-Spots for this application. They’ve been rock solid on the project so far, and we’ll likely be adding more of them to the show next year. Highly recommended for when you need a full-featured moving head profile fixture that lives outdoors.”
