A Happy Holidays Bit of Hilarity on JimOnLight!

We’re trying to make the Holidays as completely ridiculous as possible this year, so please enjoy our new especial all-the-way-from-Las Vegas Holiday-on-Crack background and twinkle-light-tastic JimOnLight.com logo!  We at JimOnLight.com and Light Associated Media, LLC feel that the holidays should be as jam packed with as much ridiculous as humanly possible – and not that Black Friday ridiculous, I mean RIDICULOUS ridiculous.  Nobody’s gonna shoot you in the face with lachrymatory agents in here, JimOnLight.com is a no-OC-and-CS-zone!  Well, Lumiere often likes to strut around the office showing everyone her anus, but really, who doesn’t?

I’m trying to find some Christmas-scented deodorant to really bring the smell of the Holidays home to roost, but so far all I can find is Eggnog flavor (weird) and Old Drunk Aunt Suze flavor (bourbon and Vicodin).

Yeah.  YEAH!

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you have gotten all of your Christmas shopping done, because as we all experienced this Black Friday, “tis the season” to treat each other like crap at the places of retail consumery.  I say calm the f*** down and understand that if you don’t get the first XBox, you don’t have to pepper spray people.  Yeah.

Check out the JimOnLight.com Flickr Group and see some excellent work by amateur and pro photogs putting their light-filled work out there!

.PSLAB and “Streetlights” Shines in Berlin

One of my favorite lighting design firms, .PSLAB out of Beirut (and Stuttgart now too!), had an excellent installation last month in Berlin that needs some attention!  .PSLAB has had lots of projects covered here on JimOnLight.com, frankly because they have a lot of awesome projects!  This new one is no exception.  It debuted in Berlin last month at the Qubique Next-Generation Tradeshow – which, may I add, looks amazing!  Before we get to the .PSLAB exhibit at Qubique, just check out this short video on the Qubique show itself.  Amazing!

Right?! I wanna go do more German tradeshows!  Qubique was held in an old Berlin airport that stopped being an airport in 2008 – Berlin Templehof.  .PSLAB’s exhibit was installed in the airport as a part of a centerpiece/gathering place.

Check out .PSLAB’s “Streetlights” exhibit that took place at Qubique – Streetlights is an exhibit made from…  oh heck, from the PSLAB information on Streetlights, they tell it better than me!  It’s interesting, this Streetlights exhibit – actually debuted a little while ago with a project done with Dos Architects in London.  The original:

The ‘Streetlights’ installation is made of 220 vintage car headlamps suspended to the ceiling and giving a sense of floating. For the Qubique site, the linearity of the space was emphasised by the hanging fixture. The vast 15 metre ceiling height was counteracted by dropping the fixture to 3.5 metres above the ground, creating an intimate meeting place around the brasserie bar. The steel pipes that make up the grid were placed at intervals, two or three pipes separated by gaps, in order to let the installation form a certain rhythm while creating a second ceiling layer in the bar area. 

From the .PSLAB documentation on the installation – a bit of a site map:

Ok.  It’s cool – check it:

I love your work, .PSLAB!
