Wrightwood 659 is a new art gallery in Chicago exhibiting architecture and socially engaged art. The design of the gallery balances wide-open spaces with intimate “coves,” for viewing smaller exhibits. The gallery owner required a significant number of control zones to accommodate a variety of uses and maximize flexibility. In addition to simple dimming, the gallery wanted to include lights with color-changing capabilities. The system was to be programmed by the curators while walking the space, changing light levels and color from a single, portable device. As the system requirements mounted, ETC and the Paradigm control system became the obvious solution. Read the whole story here.
“With over 400 circuits of control, plus more than 75 button stations and sensors, the power of Paradigm’s processors was critical to this installation’s success.” – Chris Prezas, Protolight
