Process

We design illuminations, architectural light installations, digital art and media for buildings, precincts and public spaces.

We bring purpose, direction and movement to the integration of light and digital media.

The inspiration of a project already exists within a space, we see our role is to unveil and nurture the work into life.

Our process stages

Concept Design

Concept Design

Our Concept Design begins with a Discovery Phase, whereby we undertake research to understand the context of the project and to develop an artistic narrative and intention. From this foundation, we generate our concepts from sketch designs to high-level design visualisations to explore and visualise the design ideas.

Concept Design also includes preliminary technical layouts, integration drawings, proposed hardware datasheets, preliminary control system design and RAMUS fee estimation.

Design Development

Design Development

Throughout this stage, we develop our relationships with all stakeholders in the project delivery including the client, suppliers, architects and services. We detail the design and how the artwork technically integrates into the architecture and its built environment.

We undertake testing and prototyping to investigate and further develop the concept design and to fully understand the practical expression of the piece.

Content Development

Content Production

Content Production

Content production consists of content generation and post-production. We generate content material through the appropriate and required media, which includes cinematography, animation, application development and code/algorithm creation.

Subsequent organisation, editing, prototyping, pre-visualising and processing of produced content into the final content material prepares the project for the final Programming phase.

Technical Production

Technical Production

Through the construction and fabrication phase, we provide design review and coordination, ensuring the integrity of the design is maintained through to the installation.

We work closely with builders, suppliers, and infrastructure consultants to resolve issues that arise to ensure there are no gaps between all disciplines.

Construction and Installation

Construction and Installation

Through the construction and fabrication phase, we provide design review and coordination, ensuring the integrity of the design is maintained through to the installation. We work closely with builders, suppliers, and infrastructure consultants to resolve issues that arise to ensure there are no gaps between all disciplines.

We review and approve all installations and Inspection Test Plans to confirm fixture performance matches the expectations of the design intent. This phase also includes the full installation, commissioning and mapping of the

RAMUS CORE control system custom designed and built to the needs of each of our projects.

Programming

Programming

The last stage of the creative process is to implement and integrate the content on site.

Our creative and technical teams work on site to fine-tune the content and associated technical equipment and operations to complete the creative commissioning of the work.

Scheduling of the various pieces of content is conducted, together with client training on how to operate the user interface to manage the ongoing scheduling of the installation.

Content Refresh

Content Refresh

With each of our designs, there is a considered content rhythm designed to work in harmony with the site and our client.

Our studio can be commissioned to manage the production of new content on an ongoing basis to refresh the content experience when needed and to create additional content that marks calendar and special events.

From public works to private commissions, We bring light to a diverse range of projects.
