Yeosu, Korea — the 2012 Maritime World Fair. The Big O, constructed on a man-made island in Yeosu harbor, is 50m in diameter, and houses 48 Martin MAC2K luminaires, in Tornado enclosures.
There are another 32 Tornados around the base and on shore, with MAC3 luminaires.
Now the bad news — between each light on the Big O is an automated water jet — like a programmable fire hose creating an amazing water ballet.
Oh yes, and it’s SALT water, pumped right out of the harbor! So, since 2012 these lights have been running every night in a kind of saltwater Niagara Falls — probably the worst environment you could imagine.
The good news?
