Digital Ambiance, an Oakland-based creative lighting installation company, won a project for delivering interactive lighting for Cultural Arts District Park in Fresno, California. In the park, there are 5 large canopies that serve as a diffuser of the DMX lighting arrays installed above them. The lighting array interacts with people on the square using 15 thermal cameras.
Digital Ambiance first came in touch with Lightact in 2013 and since then, it’s their first choice for interactive projects. The main factor in their decision making is Lightact’s 24/7 reliability combined with a wide range of programming options including the ability to integrate custom computer-vision and content plugins.
Digital Ambiance partnered with Anticlockwise Arts, an interactive arts studio from Oakland, who created a C++ based content plugin. It’s designed to pull data from a custom-built computer vision plug-in created by Visible, our parent company, and output a real-time generative artwork inspired by the City of Fresno.
