Rosco Image Spots projected gobos to illuminate the walkways of Rys och Mys 2023.
Projecting Holiday Gobos In The City Square
This year’s festival revolved around the theme “The Enchanted City” as it turned the city center and the historic Varberg Fortress into a magical place filled with lights and color. Johan noted how the Image Spot HO fixtures enabled him to “find other locations than we had done before with longer distances. Either that, or we were able to use greater dispersion with wider lenses and still get high luminance.”
The autumnal Rys och Mys festival celebrates all of the local fall holidays, so it isn’t uncommon to see Halloween and other holiday gobos projected together. A perfect example of this is how Johan mounted three of the IP65-rated Image Spot HO fixtures in the city square to illuminate the Sparbankshuset building with bright and crisp images of stars, a spiderweb, and hearts.
Projecting Custom Gobos Designed By Local Children
Another festival highlight included charming and colorful projections of children’s drawings onto the façade of one of the buildings inside the city’s historic fortress area. Johan used artwork that was created by local children to design three Rosco Custom Glass Gobos.
Johan relied on the bright output from three Image Spot HO fixtures to bring out the rich and saturated colors of the gobo images. “The extra strength of the light allows us to project deeper colors on more difficult surfaces,” he said. “This year, children have painted hands, houses, and feet that would light up a brick façade. But with less brightness, the colors would not have been so clear.”
