Light It Forward – El Presidio de Santa Barbara




We are currently working on a 16 panel mural for Santa Maria. Recreation and Parks Department. It’ll be hung on a prominent building downtown.

Originally, it was supposed to be a traditional “paint-directly-on-the-wall” affair, but was changed to accommodate future renovations. In other words, it can be taken down and put back up.

It’s now being painted on 16, marine grade, 4 x 8 pieces of plywood. To facilitate these changes, we are projection mapping the individual images on to the panels. The mural will be up by Spring of 2023.

The featured artist is Enrique “Ricky” Nuñez, in collaboration with The Environment Makers and Dennis Smitherson from the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department.

Projectors are lights with super powers. Instead of simply illuminating a space they can give texture, depth and, above all, meaning.

Even the best sculpture in the world is just something to stumble into at night if it's not lit up. If you're going to light it, make it fun, which is exactly what we've been doing with unique lighting installations and well placed lasers.

Theming is what creates theme parks and is the next level of faux finishing. It can turn a living room into a canyon in Utah .
