Peru National Football Stadium


Cinimod Studio have delivered an innovative interactive lighting control system for the Peru National Stadium in Lima. Tapping into the collective mood of the crowd, lighting is used to establish a visual connection between the fans, their passion, and the game.

Working as part of an international design and delivery team including CAM and ArquiLEDS in Peru, e:cue in Germany, and Traxon in Hong Kong, Cinimod Studio created a cutting-edge mood analysis system to control the stadium façade lighting.

Using a combination of innovative technologies and lighting layouts, the façade of the stadium has been infused with a mixture of lights that allow the façade to act as a "mirror" of the crowd’s mood. In what is probably now the largest crowd controlled interactive lighting display in the world, the stadium is able to communicate the ebb and flow of excitement and disappointment to the surrounding city, thus becoming a watched spectacle in itself.


A network of customised sound level metres was deployed along the roof line of the stadium to create a dynamic map of the crowd’s noise levels. This data was then processed by Cinimod’s processing hardware and software located in the main communications room of the stadium.


Cinimod software developed specifically for the project processed the sound level data in real-time, performing a series of comparative mathematical calculations and analysis by self-calibrating algorithms. The output from the software is a "mood state" that summarizes the collective mood of the crowd.

The lighting patterns have been carefully designed to faithfully depict the moods. The patterns vary in colour, speed, brightness and scale — at times the façade can be seen to sparkle with obvious joy and celebration, other times it recoils into a subdued and disappointed state. In these variations the mood of the crowd is clearly visualised for the outside city to see and share.

Further technical details

Lighting Output

The external lighting scheme is designed to integrate seamlessly within the architectural framework, while providing the required media façade framework to display lighting patterns that depict the mood the crowd within the stadium. Working with the design of the new façade, the majority of the lights are laid out in dramatic fans of "flames" that wrap upwards around the bulbous form of the structure.

The scale of the stadium façade necessitated a very large array of colour and pixel addressable fittings. The fittings are all from Traxon Technologies, who specialise in high quality architectural LED lights. Their overall installation is linked to an e:cue architectural lighting controller that provides the required 62 universes of DMX lighting control output.

The overall façade lighting control system is comprised of 2 main components: Cinimod’s interactive mood analysis system and the E:cue lighting control system. These two components work in tandem to deliver an ever-evolving and responsive lighting display on the façade.

Technical Details of Interactive System

As is common to many Cinimod projects, the challenge was to develop a bespoke and reliable solution that would faithfully deliver Cinimod’s ambitious scheme for an interactive lighting control system. Utilising a transfer of technologies from related industries, Cinimod created a cutting-edge mood analysis system for the Stadium project.

Crowd Noise Level Mapping

A network of customised sound level metres was deployed along the roof line of the stadium to create a dynamic map of the crowd’s noise levels. This data was then processed by Cinimod’s processing hardware and software located in the main communications room of the stadium.

Mood Analysis

Cinimod software developed specifically for the project processed the sound level data in real-time, performing a series of comparative mathematical calculations and analysis by self-calibrating algorithms. The output from the software is a "mood state" that summarizes the collective mood of the crowd.

The 4 states defined states are:

Boring: The crowd has a neutral attitude to the game, indicating the lack of any particularly good game play.
Excitement: Detected by a surge in crowd noise levels, the crowd is determined to be excited by events on the pitch.
Celebration: The celebration mood would normally be triggered by a goal, and is detected by further rise within the ‘exciting’ state followed by a sustained level of constant high-level noise.
Disappointment: If the noise levels of the ‘exciting’ state reach a peak followed by a rapid decline in levels, then the software is likely to detect a disappointed crowd.

Output

The mood analysis software runs perpetually, constantly evaluating the mood. It communicates the determined mood state to the e:cue lighting controller which then sends the relevant DMX control signal to all the light fixtures.

The lighting patterns have been carefully designed to faithfully depict the moods. The patterns vary in colour, speed, brightness and scale — at times the façade can be seen to sparkle with obvious joy and celebration, other times it recoils into a subdued and disappointed state. In these variations the mood of the crowd is clearly visualised for the outside city to see and share.

The lighting of the stadium was the result of teamwork from design and production offices across South America, Europe and Asia.

The light on the creative process

The documentary Light in the creative process has been featured in the exhibition Spain Alight in the framework of the Tokyo Designer's Week held from 1 to 6 November, and designed and curated by the Stone Designs studio based in Madrid in which show a careful representation of the best Spanish design in recent years.

This documentary is a reflection about the influence of light in the process of creation of the Spanish creatives. Light is the basic element and the starting point from which projects, pieces of work and products arise, characterizing Spain and its way of living. Three relevant figures of the Spanish industrial and artistic world have been interviewed:

Antonio Jiménez Torrecillas: Architect; Spanish National Prize of Architecture and International Prize of Architecture in Pietra, Verona, amongst others.
Daniel Canogar: Artist; he has exhibited in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS Madrid) and New York Natural Science Museum, amongst others.
Joan Gaspar:Industrial designer; awarded with a Silver Delta, amongst others.

The cities where the documentary was filmed are three emblematic scenarios of the Spanish geography: Barcelona, Granada and Madrid. Unique moments where light is the true main character of the story have been captured in each one of these places.

Director: Jorge Cosmen
Original idea: Mateo García, Cutu Mazuelos, Eva Prego

New Angles

New Angles by Super Nature

New Angles is an interactive light installation by shanghai-based design studio, super nature
The hexagonal object features a crystallized surface which flickers and blinks in a multitude of colours.
Each faceted angle acts in a manner similar to a giant pixel, holistically displaying an image or effect by coordinating their light patterns.

The installation aims to create a visual dialogue with the viewer, at times mimicking and reflecting the actions of those in front with a ghostly but vibrantly coloured silhouette. it plays with the elements of imagination and reality by juxtaposing the act of subversive thinking with visual perception.

Paysages en exil

PAYSAGES EN EXIL by Nicolas Dorval-Bory & Raphaël Bétillon

PAYSAGES EN EXIL by Nicolas Dorval-Bory & Raphaël Bétillon seeks to create, along the hospital of La Grave in Toulouse, an experimental journey in which the visitor is invited to explore an unlikely landscape, a condensation of climates, a mix of Natures from all over the world. The project finds its genesis in the description of “wandering plants phenomenon” made by Gilles Clément:

“Plants travel. Grass mostly. They silently move in the way of the winds. Nothing can stop the wind. By harvesting clouds, one would be surprised to get imponderable seeds mixed with loess, fertile dusts. In the sky yet unforeseeable landscapes are being designed. Chance organizes the details, uses every possible vehicle to distribute the species. Everything suits the transport, from ocean currents to shoe soles. Most of the trip belongs to animals. Nature charters birds, berry eaters, gardening ants, subversive and quiet sheeps, which fleece holds fields and fields of seeds. And also man. Restless animal, always in the move, free swapper of diversity.”



In an acclimatization space – a long agricultural greenhouse – are prepared medicinal plants seedlings coming from the five continents. Having “blindly” chosen one of them, the visitor continues its journey and enters a thick cloud, a dense mist born from the spraying of the Garonne river, on the Viguerie footbridge. At the end of this vaporous trail, a surprising garden welcomes him, inviting him to plant the seedling that he has carried so far.

Empire State Building lights up for Spain's World Cup win

Empire State Building lights up for Spain's World Cup win

It was a last-minute surprise, but the Empire State Building tonight is lit up red and yellow for Spain’s World Cup victory, a spokeswoman for the skyscraper’s management company confirmed to NewYorkology via e-mail tonight.

The official lighting schedule still lists the colors as purple, pink and yellow, which was the color scheme intended Friday through Sunday for Broadway Barks Cat and Dog Adopt-a-Thon.

Earlier in the evening, Sean Kennedy on Twitter noted a delay in the lighting.

Update as of July 12 at 7:30 a.m.: The Empire State Building will light up red, yellow and red for a second night tonight in honor of the World Cup winners, a spokeswoman for the building’s management company said in an e-mail to NewYorkology. The online lighting schedule has also been updated to include last night’s change.
