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

 

We begin with a discovery phase to develop an artistic context and narrative to the piece and how it integrates with the project. We then generate concepts from high-level sketches through to animations and fly-throughs to explore and visualise the design ideas.

Concept design also includes content concepts, preliminary technical and integration drawings, proposed hardware data sheets, control system design and full project cost estimation.

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 Production

Content Production

Ramus produces world-class content using a range of media from videography to animation, from hand drawn to interactive, algorithmically generative content. We utilize a pool of in-house talent as well as curating talented cutting-edge artists with a unique expression. We also develop ongoing curatorial and educational programs, that includes emerging and established artists and student and cultural groups, so the project can enjoy a socially sustainable future.

Technical Production

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.

Installation

Installation

Installation

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.

Ramus Care

Ramus care options provide a range of services to maintain and manage the artwork. Cloud hosting is available for the CORE control system to allow client remote access to the scheduling of the installation. In addition, ongoing maintenance support is offered to ensure consistent up-time of the installation and regular software updates.

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. Ramus manages the production of new content on an ongoing basis to refresh the content experience when needed and to create content that marks calendar and special events.

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