The Colourful Dance Of These Shipyard Cranes Is Surprisingly Beautiful

The colourful dance of these shipyard cranes is surprisingly beautiful

I never thought I was going to say that shipyard cranes are beautiful, but when I saw them dancing in synch to the Close Encounters of the Third Kind theme -- at the 1:14 mark -- they really got me. The cranes were coloured with spotlights synchronised with the music, creating the dazzling dancing effect.

This project was made by Skira, an architectural lighting studio based in Croatia, for the Visualia Festival. They used 74 Philips RGB led spotlights which can be programmed with thousands of colours and intensities.
