Mindeerup Piazza - Connect Mends Street

Mindeerup Piazza represents the pinnacle of technology in public open spaces, incorporating LED area lighting, RGBW feature lighting,interactivity and event sound all co-ordinated by Light Application’s central control system.

The centerpiece of the piazza is the ‘karl kep ngoornd-iny’ (Fire and Water Dreaming) sound and light show, which co-ordinates projected dreamtime imagery and animated lighting effects with an immersive surround sound audio track. The sequence was designed by Yondee Shane Hansen with Art +,and shares ancient stories  representing the cycles and rhythms of country from an Aboriginal perspective. The show runs for 15 minutes and can be experienced at 8pm and 9pm October through to April, with an additional 8.30pm show Friday through Sunday. Winter run times are 7pm and 8pm from May to September, with an additional 7.30pm show Friday through Sunday.

The central chandelier is built from suspended pureLED Flextube Addressable RGBW strip, and is capable of both pure, high quality white light and rich, saturated colour. Subtle, sophisticated animations can be displayed, breathing life into the area for visitors and local residents alike. An interactive audio installation provides natural ambience and animal sounds played back as pedestrians walk through the main thoroughfare between the ferry terminal and Mends St. Pedestrian presence is detected by infrared sensors adjacent to speakers concealed within the light poles. Other lighting around the site includes under bench lighting, street lights on South Perth Esplanade, street lights dotted throughout the pedestrian areas of the piazza and an animated feature emulating the movement of the ‘engine order telegraph’ from the old ferry steamer, “The Duchess”.

Every light, sound and interactivity feature around the site is centrally co-ordinated by Light Application’s ‘Extend’ system, which automatically directs scheduling, lighting levels, animated shows and coloured event themes across multiple brands, makes and models of equipment including Helvar, Pharos, pureLED and the site’s public address system. Real-time reporting, monitoring, control and scheduling can be managed by the City of South Perth from the comfort of their offices thanks to Extend’s remote management capabilities. A Pharos touchscreen is also concealed behind a hidden door onsite to allow event staff to take control of the lighting and sound system at a moment’s notice.

Electrical design was by Engineering Technology Consultants, installation by Shamrock Electrical, audio soundtrack by SoundByte and lighting and control system supply and programming by Light Application.
