The London Olympics is the most recent highlight of the impact and effect of LED lighting. During the opening and closing ceremonies, the Olympic Stadium featured over 70,000 LED modules positioned amongst the seats, each containing 9 LED’s. Anyone who watched the Olympics appreciated the effects of these LED modules in both brightness and artistry. London took Vancouver’s concept of projected light scenes one step further by creating a whole other ‘character’ within the production in the form of these lights.
This elevated technical artistry will no doubt post an even higher bar to the next Games, challenging future host cities to embrace both the green technology of LED’s and the artistic punch of their pure, bright colours.
I wonder what Sochi has up its’ sleeve?!
