24 industrial work lights are hooked up to 6 DMX lighting control dimmer packs. The lights are arranged across the entire floor of a downtown Bellevue Washington construction site. A stand-alone DMX controller is sending an oscillating wave of light fade commands, creating an undulating stripe of light flowing across the width of the building.

This work was a commision from Su Development and the Elements Too building to celebrate the holiday season and enliven the Bellevue skyline during the darkest month of the year. Additional support came from Open Satellite and 911 Media Arts Center.
