    A few weeks ago in the Sand Canyon/San Clarita Valley, south of Los Angeles, a wildfire pretty much gutted the valley — homes destroyed, property, vehicles, just pure havoc. This was quite an unfortunate fire; there are a very intriguing set of photographs of this fire, shot by David McNew of Getty Images.  I think […]

    Nature is a serious lady.  This is a bummer of a story, but it shows the power that Mother Nature harnesses with respect to light, in this case in the form of lightning. Last Friday (26 August 2016) in a large thunderstorm system in a private game reserve in Norway, an estimated 323 reindeer were […]

    I’ve worked on both sides of the equation with respect to the manufacturer/user balance, and the question of which five things a fixture could improve upon ALWAYS comes up — I always love the discussion because everyone wants something different.   It’s honestly sometimes a special little hell from a product development standpoint, because usually, […]

    Well, we’ve all been wondering who was sniffing, now we know — BARCO is in talks with Electronic Theatre Controls (yes, THAT ETC) about putting High End Systems somewhere within the ETC line.  It’s not a secret that the Revolution didn’t quite hit the rental market like they liked (although it is a fine moving […]

    Arts cuts.  Organizations in our purview are commenting on President Trump’s proposed cuts to National Arts funding.  Just having returned from USITT this week, I was surprised to hear conversations for and against his cuts to the artistic health of the United States.  If we’ve got no arts, what is any of this worth?

    Lighting designers and video content people, heads up.  An amazing trove of over 750 films from the late 50’s and early 60’s have just been declassified, and scientists have put these old nuclear test films, many of them nitrate films disintegrating from sheer age, up on Youtube. Recently, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has released […]

    2017 has already been stupid busy for the lighting industries.  There are more than a handfuls of deals going on right now that I know about, and I’m sure another two handfuls after that I don’t know.  Business is moving upwards in this Trumpian economy for some reason.  Seriously, look at the gentle climb under […]

    I’m a huge fan of the DIY laser ablation scene, I have been wanting to put together my own X-Y laser CNC cutter for a long time.  Something else that has really come a long way in the last 2-3 years is 3d printing — like a CNC in reverse!  Instead of ablating material from […]
