Lam Labs at Lam Partners installed a site-specific light art installation “Light in Context ” at Buckingham Brown and Nichols Upper School Gallery in Cambridge, MA. Constructed of white screen, colored gels, and Color Kinetics RGBW 10×60 grazers, Lam transforms the BB&N Gallery space through light and material.
As the winning entry for the Light Boston Lechmere Viaduct competition, moonPHASE is our take on illuminating this dark MBTA bridge that carries the Green Line over the Charles River near the Museum of Science in Boston. moonPHASE re-engages the head of the Charles River with the lunar cycles and changing daily tides. The span of the bridge will show a gradient of pastel hued light representative of the high and low tides each day, while the arches will pick up the color of tide at that particular moment, slowly cycling up and down. The causeway lights create a marker, cycling through the same cool to warm pattern as each night progresses. moonPHASE bears witness to the temporal relationship between celestial bodies, putting our tenuous relationship with our planet in context.
As part of the Somerville Arts Council “nightLIGHTS,” a series of light installations appearing throughout the city, Lam Partners created door², an immersive “door” experience that envelopes a warm inviting light to create the experience of home.
At Davis Square Plaza and the East Somerville Library a re-purposed, wooden front door stands alone in its frame. As passersby grow curious, they will find they can open the door partially and be immersed in the warm inviting light of “home”, while they are briefly silhouetted against the darkness of the evening.
Beyond Walls is a group of business owners, residents and artists creating public art, seeking to revitalize Lynn, MA, and to offer improved wayfinding and a sense of security in the heart of the downtown area. Lam Partners teamed with Payette and Port Lighting to design dramatic and colorful underpass lighting, connecting Central Square and Washington Street, creating an inviting and appealing nighttime experience.
