Deptford Launch #1 – High...Low

Monday evening saw the launch of High...Low, the light sculpture by Shona Kitchen & Dominic Robson which we reported was installed back in November. Apparently the makers have been ironing out some problems since then, but it is now fully operational.

We found out at the launch, which was attended by Joan Ruddock MP, that the structure houses 165 low power 1 watt LED spotlights which are synchronised using a micro-controller and a database of predicted tide times. A small solar power unit which feeds into the national grid has been installed on the roof of Faircharm to offset the power consumed by the artwork.
