Barcelona Street Lamps – Cities – GOOD

“Think of all the electricity that’s wasted by city lights that stay on when no one needs them. To solve this problem, one Barcelona neighborhood is using a system of Endesa LED lights, controlled wirelessly, to provide light exactly when, and where, it’s needed. It keeps the streets safe while saving the city money.” via Barcelona Street Lamps – Cities – GOOD.

Vectorial Elevation

“Vectorial Elevation was an interactive artwork that allowed participants to transform the sky over Vancouver, Canada. Using a three-dimensional interface, this web site let you design huge light sculptures by directing 20 robotic searchlights located around English Bay. A web page was made for each participant with photos of their design from four cameras located around the city.

The project was live from February 4 to 28, 2010 and in that time received 887,988 page views from 162 countries, with 57% of the traffic from Canada. This report contains statistics, selected comments, and public designs.”
