Completion Date Completed January 2018
Project Location Auckland, New Zealand
Entry DescriptionThe Vector Lights is a permanent lighting design created, installed and programmed by Mandylights which features nearly 100,000 individually controllable LED pixels and floods across Auckland's kilometre wide Harbour Bridge. The project includes custom designed fixtures and layouts to create an interactive video surface where designers and children alike can play a part in the creation of stunning shows that reflect the cultural, natural and visual beauty of Auckland and New Zealand. The project represents a landmark public / private partnership between Auckland Transport, Auckland City Council and the private Vector Limited, and is completely carbon neutral due to the installation of a solar farm which supplies all power to the lighting system.
