Chauvet rides Light Waves Atlanta
13 July 2012
USA - The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's new international terminal, the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, features an art installation entitled Light Waves: Atlanta, a large-scale art installation by Christopher Janney, artistic director for PhenomenArts, Inc. The piece, part of the Airport Art Programme, is one of five works for the new terminal.
The piece, described by Janney as "an abstraction of Georgia in colour and sound", features 32 Chauvet Intimidator Scan LED 300 scanners, 68 horizontal panes of coloured glass - stacked in 17 sections with four panes in each section - along a 160ft hallway. As the light from the recessed fixtures in the ceiling passes over the glass, it reflects and refracts creating a continuously changing pattern of colour on the wall.
Janney, who is a trained architect and jazz musician, composed a score of environmental accents - indigenous sounds of natural Georgia environments - that accompany this 'light ballet'. Additionally, the hallway features a series of interactive 'touch panels' that are activated by a passerby triggering a soft tone. The light and sound work together creating an immersive experience for travellers making them part of the artwork.
"After extensive research for Light Waves: Atlanta," said Janney. "The Chauvet Intimidator Scan LED 300, as a single-source LED with a hard edge that penetrates through four panes of glass, was hands-down the best fixture on the market."
