Lighting : Lighting June 2016 - Vol 36 Issue 3
June/July 2016 | LIGHTING MAGAZINE 41 40 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | June/July 2016 All in all it was a fabulous effort from all teams and a fun night was had by all. Joint prizes were awarded by our judges, Philp Leeson, Jack Shimada and Chris Milman, to groups 3 and 6 with torches as prizes. Photographs were generously provided by Glenn Martin (www.glennmartin.photography) and Dale Smith (www.wildapplephotography.com). Group 5 riffed on the random destruction of fire, setting the bushes in the foreground aglow with flaming colours and casting shadows evoking sooty destruction across the chimney – the sole remnant of the conflagration. Links between the catastrophic Canberra bush fires and the fiery history of the Yarralumla Brickworks were also explored. Photo provided by Dale Smith, Wild Apple Photography, www.wildapplephotography.com Group 6 put chills down our spine with stories of the zombie apocalypse which occurred in the Yarralumla Brickworks where many movies have been filmed, especially in the fan house. They drew links between the horror of the zombies and the horror of losing the Yarralumla Brickworks to developers who are likely to turn this historic and atmospheric site into apartments or who knows what else when the site is sold up by the ACT Government. Strobe lighting was cleverly used to make the fan look as though it was still spinning after all these years.

The IESANZ has, with others, worked with the Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Program, to provide assistance and advice in the development of this program. The IESANZ encourages all members to try out the app, available on both Apple and Android services, and provide feedback to E3 to assist with ongoing development and improvement. The Light Bulb Saver app is designed to help consumers find an energy efficient lamp to replace their incandescent or halogen lamps – or identify a suitable replacement for a retailer/electrician/designer to recommend to their customer. The app shows how different lamps affect electricity bills, especially showing how transitioning to more efficient alternatives – such as LEDs – can save money on electricity and replacement costs.
