Prominently positioned on the viaduct above the well-known Union Theatre in Bankside is the contemporary landmark artwork, Cyclorama. Commissioned by Network Rail and designed by British visual artist Rachel Wilberforce, the vibrant artwork is part of a project to regenerate the local area and features UFO's colour changing fibre optics.
The free-flowing spiral structure is constructed from stainless steel and comprises of a mirror polish on one side and a vibrant red spray paint on the other. Along the curved edges of the structure are lengths of our 14.5mm diameter stranded sideglow fibre which project a specific sequence of colours that subtly change as the light moves in mirror-image reverse between the upper and lower sections of Cyclorama.
Powering the fibre optics are two of our 46W Nova LED light sources which have been specially programmed in-house, to generate the sequence of colours that are gently emitted throughout the day and night. The light sources were installed on-site by our installation engineers are housed in weatherproof enclosures to protect them from the elements.
