light tree - West Cornwall
- 2008 I
used a mixture of Luxeon K2 LEDs and Luxeon 1 watt LEDs with a DMX colour
changing program to temporary light this 20 metre high Monterey Pine in
I used to think that LEDs were best for indoor spaces, architectural accents
and shining directly at the viewer. This was the first time using LEDs for
an outdoor floodlighting installation and I was really impressed with how
much impact the latest high powered LEDs have. The K2s provided the main
light from a single RGBW floodlight using 5 red, green, blue, and white
K2 LEDs. The fourth channel, white, allows a much more subtle range of colours.
The infill light was from 2 RGB floodlights using 15 red, green and blue
1 watt LEDs.
