Light: The Universal Immersive Experience

Light is an immersive experience with universal appeal. It transcends boundaries and captivates people of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. Light art installations do not confine themselves to predefined dimensions or spaces. They can adapt to the available space, making each design unique to its location.

“Light is a form of communication. Light is both a particle and a wave, physical and formless. It naturally expands through connections, and the less dense the energy it encounters, the more it expands. Light is a medium through which humans and businesses can express themselves and connect. It draws us in like moths to aflame” says Bruce Ramus, Director at Ramus Illumination.

Moreover, light is inherently respectful to the environment, making it a sustainable choice in an increasingly eco-conscious world. New spaces can experience the magic of light art installations, bringing wonder and excitement to unfamiliar places.

Attractions: Beyond Physicality, Focused on Emotions

Attractions are not just about physical form or movement. They are, at their core, about evoking emotions and creating stress-free, enjoyable experiences. Less about the physical impact and more about how they make us feel. Light art installations align perfectly with this philosophy, offering a unique and memorable emotional impact.

From a commercial standpoint, light art can be a game-changer. It reimagines underutilized spaces, breathing new life and emotion into them. Light art installations have broad appeal and can showcase a destination or location, driving tourism and visitation.

Reimagining space that may not have other commercial or attraction purposes makes sense. It does create an emotional impact. Noel Dempsey, Business Director at Pico Play, explains that they have developed a unique method of generating revenue. They achieve this by providing attractions during the day and showcasing light art at night.
