Oculus Presentation at LightFair 2021
Oculus Principal Scott Hatton will be presenting at LightFair in New York this fall! His talk titled “Using Light to Create Natural Environments and Powerful Human Experiences: A Case Study of Three Aquarium Projects”, will take place on October 28th from 8:30am-9:30am (Session Code: L21EL2; check out the conference schedule here).
Join us on a journey through the recently completed St. Louis Aquarium, Mississippi Aquarium, and the “SHARKS! Predators of the Deep” exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium. These examples will show how the latest lighting and control technologies were used to create a variety of natural environments for the animals, and an experiential journey for humans.
Some of the specific strategies that Scott will review are: full spectrum and color-tunable LED technology used in applications that have traditionally been dominated by HID sources, as well as using a combination of DMX, traditional architectural lighting controls, and onboard luminaire controls. He will present important factors that guided the design concepts, give a behind-the-scenes look at the construction, show images of mock-ups that were conducted at the largest indoor aquarium tank in the western hemisphere, discuss how the end results were achieved, and tell the stories of all the lessons learned along the way!
We hope you’ll be able to join Oculus for this exciting presentation!
