Merchants Exchange Dazzles for Holidays

Date: 2012-12-01

Pushing the envelope when it comes to traditional holiday décor in the Merchants Exchange building has become something of a trademark for building owner Clint Reilly. This year, he commissioned acclaimed environmental design firm BrazenWorks to transform the beautiful beaux arts styled atrium and exterior into a dynamic computer controlled light sculpture.

Complete with over 60 giant ‘Lightcicles’ and two life-sized deer, you’re looking at 2,150 Total Control Lighting pixels, arranged in 2 banks of 1,950 x 200 pixels; each bank controlled by an Elite 2K Controller. The Lightcicles served as our devise to visually define a glorious gathering place to engage the building’s community.

For a full description of the project and an arresting video of the installation, head over to the BrazenWorks website.
