Clay Paky Sharpys shine at GreenWaves III
13 July 2012
USA - Environmentally friendly Clay Paky Sharpy met eco-inspired GreenWaves III recently, the third annual event at the University of Central Florida (UCF) that implements environmental and social best practices to promote the need for conscious sustainable solutions.
Lighting designer Justin Geiger of California-based Impulse Creative Group used 16 Sharpys for the concert portion of the event, which featured electronic artists and notable DJs. It was billed as the first interactive concert at UCF and took sustainability to the next level by utilizing a PowerLeap dance floor, which uses "Piezo" flooring technology to convert the energy from the crowd into reusable energy for the concert.
Geiger deployed his complement of Sharpys on the main stage at the UCF Arena. "We used them on the wings, flanking a 40ft projection wall and had four on the stage," he reports. "We needed fixtures that would deliver the biggest impact for a high-energy electronic show with budgetary restrictions. We had free reign on design."
Francesco Romagnoli, Clay Paky area manager for North and Latin America, adds, "One of the outstanding features of our Sharpy is the punch it provides relative to its energy-efficient qualities. This festival is the perfect place to showcase those features."
