SGM returns to Splendour in the Grass

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: SGM IP65 fixtures have been used for the second consecutive year at the Splendour in the Grass music and arts festival. After being implemented into Melbourne-based visual artist Sam Songailo’s Programme One piece last year, the fixtures were selected once again for this year’s Programme Two installation by ETA lighting designer Taylor Chadwick, based on their prior performance.

‘From our experiences in previous years, we had to ensure that the specified lighting fixtures would be able to withstand extended periods of rain,’ explained Mr Chadwick. ‘Last year, the SGM units operated flawlessly despite the torrential rain, so it was a no-brainer to utilise the IP65-rating of these units again this year.’

The design of Programme Two featured a painted structure, covering 400 sq-m and boasting 50 individual 1m x 4m tall pillars. These were placed in a configuration resembling a colosseum. In addition, eight P-5 wash lights and one G-Spot LED moving head were used to light up the structure during each night of the event.

‘Sam’s works typically involve striking colours and bold geometric patterns,’ Mr Chadwick commented. ‘I required LED wash fixtures that could complement this at night, immersing the space inside of the work in deeply saturated colours, while also having the intensity to throw light over a distance, casting shadow outward as a continuation of the lines of the structure. The P-5 at a wide lends option fulfilled this design spec perfectly and operated flawlessly throughout the festival.

‘The G-Spot was deployed as a key figure of the artwork, acting somewhat as the epicentre of the entire area,’ he continued. ‘Standing above the crows atop a 5m upright, we used it as a searchlight which pivoted continuously on its pan, searching the doorways and crowds as they entered the artwork. The response was perfect, people were chasing and jumping the beam as it circled.’
