Putrajaya hosts 3rd edition of the LAMPU light festival
The 3rd edition of Light and Motion Putrajaya, better known as LAMPU, took place from the 30th of October to the 1st of November 2015 in Putrajaya, Malaysia.
LAMPU 2015 featured projection mapping onto the facades of the Palace of Justice as well as the grand entrance of Masjid Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin. Other highlights included the return of last year’s most popular installations such as garden lighting, free standing light structures and the decorative arch.
The festival aims to introduce high-tech light designs, interactive light related activities and energy efficient lighting materials to the general public. Light art communities and university students in Malaysia showcased their creativity through a competition entitled “3R Light Structure” which aimed to involve youth while at the same time preserving nature by using recycled materials to create light structures. A forum on “The Art of Light” was also open to all.
The 2014 edition of LAMPU recorded more than 500 000 visitors and received a Malaysia Book of Records award for being the “Largest Light and Motion Festival”. It had among the highest viral rate in Perbadanan Putrajaya’s social networking sites for a Putrajaya based event.
Putrajaya, which is the only city in Malaysia to introduce a lighting master plan, aims to be the lighting industry hub in the near future, bringing the latest lighting technologies to Malaysia and putting it in the global spotlight.
