Each year, we provide a large custom lighting system for the Art Show, as well as exterior building and site lighting for the popular opening evening.
Each light used in the system requires DMX control and involves long cable runs along the roof and sides of the building. With the building made of thick sandstone, wireless is not a reliable option and so we continue to implement wired DMX each year in a carefully planned system and layout to reduce labour, cable and intrusions to the building – as it remains people’s homes for the duration of Bump In.
The building’s age means it is fragile and under careful care of their Archivist. There are no rigging options or modifications we can make, and hence a totally removable system whilst still being neat is required. We have developed a custom lighting system for the artworks that works with these requirements.
