Installs & Events
Centre In The Square
For over 30 years, Centre In The Square in Ontario, Canada, has showcased international, national and local performing arts and artists. As the region’s largest performing arts venue, they stage more than 180 events per year inside their state-of-the-art main stage and smaller studio performance space. At the lighting controls for both venues is Terry Hynes, Head of Lighting, and at his fingertips helping control the lighting for all the productions are Light Palette Live and Palette VL16 control consoles, plus a Rack Palette tracking backup, all from Philips Strand Lighting.
Doublerama by Artist Jay Shinn
Artist Jay Shinn is using light to both create and be a part of his artwork in a unique and astonishing projected painting installation entitled "Doublerama" with the Selecon Display Profile. “Having the zoom and focus capabilities really drew me to the Display Profile and I have been using them for about two years now. With the lights I used before, they were more theatrical and weren’t really made for long lamp life or for stability over a long period of time. I found that they might slip or shift which would give me a lot of trouble with the projected paintings that have to be precisely held in place over the full life of the installation. With the craftsmanship of the Selecon Display Profile I have been very pleased. When you tighten them into place they stay where needed and their lamps shine bright for a long time.”
