Sculpture Lighting Design: The Stag Sphere, Chelmsford
In the heart of Beaulieu, a 10 meter tall sculpture sits at the entrance to a new housing development in Essex revealing the creativity and inspiration the newly constructed town Beaulieu has to offer.
To work with the Artist in revealing the soft encounters of life & the show stopper work of art. The brief was not to blast the sculpture with lots of light but simply to wash it gently as if bathed in moonlight. The idea behind making the night the new day through play of form was key to add intrigue, depth and contrast.
The top of the sphere uses a warm 3000K colour temperature LED mirroring a blood moon lit night & the bottom uses 4000K colour temperature to reflect the nature of water which this half represents. The LEDs are directed from the base of the tree, uplighting the intertwining surfaces of the trunk connecting to the magnificent stag antlers. By using 3000K at the top perceived weight is added to sculpture whilst 4000K explores the perceivable weight of water magnifying its reflective qualities.
Other areas of the site were lit including sculptures of deer’s by and in the water tying in with the centre piece of the sphere. This repetition of using subtle lighting adds to the environment and landscape lifting the areas natural beauty and history.
