Description: George III is a meticulously hand-made light sculpture that gracefully changes shape and intensity. Designed and constructed to the highest standards of craftsmanship by artist Eddy Sykes, George III is a radical re-imagining of the classic chandelier for a new century.

 

Our Role:

Custom software and electronics. We developed a keyframe-based editing and playback control system to support multiple lighting/motion sequences. Animation sequences are edited on a PC-based application and played back on a compact, stand-alone control unit.
