DEVICES

The lenses and optical mechanisms used for LIGHT KEEPER were created in-house by Caitlind Brown, Wayne Garrett, and Studio North. When it comes right down to it, we were always going to have to tune the optics of LIGHT KEEPER onsite in Toronto. The distance from the lens to the concrete, the angle of the moon as it moves, the speed the rainbows cross the concrete, the specific wiring, the final programming – all of this needed to be done onsite at night, carefully tailored to the geometries and environment of the surrounding park.

LIGHT KEEPER(s)

Drawing from lighthouse lenses and analog projection technologies, LIGHT KEEPER deconstructs traditional optics to create a moon clock, rainbow waves, and a prism tower in Aitken Place Park.
