The Lamp Forest #2

Foto: Torbjørn StråndOk, there never was a post for Lamp Forest #1 because of Norwegian dept’s prolonged uselessness.

The Lamp Forest is a grid of old worn indoor lamps individually controlled from a laptop. This makes it possible to make the lamp dim and twinkle in interesting patterns, or to let the lamps interact with the audience or actors.

Foto: Torbjørn StråndAt the fall of 2010 the Lamp Forest was set up for the first time for Stedsans Porsgrunn. It consisted of 64 lamps in a 8 by 8 grid in the park. Add some rain and we probably set the record for Porsgrunns ground fault of the year 2010!

Anyway it all went well with no dead actresses or technicians, and this year we will try again at Stedsans Drammen. I have still not discussed the matter with Mario, my programmer for the last year lamp forest (hatted gentleman below), and I still do not know what to change and what to keep. I’ll keep you updated! (maybe.. or maybe I just fall into prolonged uselessness again…)
E, Norwegian/Technical department.

These dimmers are older then you... Yes you!

One response to “The Lamp Forest #2

  1. By the way. Sorry folks for the awful header image and the Chuck Norris background. It is the Spanish divisions way of blackmailing the Norwegian department into fixing up the layout, and Norwegian departments principle to never negotiate with terrorists.
