Seeing is believing By Matthew Cobham, Bayu ade Pramudia

Today’s lighting designer has a wide range of tools which can be used to assess lighting designs. Software simulation in particular is playing an important role, yet nothing can fully replace the actual experience of seeing a lighting design translated into reality. With this in mind, lighting specialists at Philips in the South East Asia Nation the so called ASEAN region recently organized the “Seeing is believing” events in Singapore, Thailand and in Bandung Indonesia. The event in Bandung focused on SSL – Solid State Lighting. Not simply as a concept, but also in a tangible form. For recently, SSL has been used in the Plaza Dago, one of Bandung’s main centres. The aim of the event was to create awareness of what can be done using SSL and also to demonstrate the artistic results that can be achieved. An important feature of the event in Bandung was a photographic competition for young, amateur and college photographers. Their brief: to show the artistic results of SSL lighting. The photographs were all taken on one evening and had to be submitted to the jury by the next morning. No electronic manipulation of the photographs, using computer software, was allowed. A selection of the entries is included here. The photographs were later sent to all customers and the owners of buildings and the comments were very positive. Many commented that the use of façade lighting increased not only the attractiveness of the buildings, but also their image and value.
