In the first episode of a two-part series focusing on Daktronics’ installation of the new Piccadilly Lights in London, we have a conversation with Patrick Halliwell, Managing Director, who takes us inside the thought process that brought the new installation “to light”. Patrick describes the new concept, the idea of always looking for re-invention, the power of content, and what it felt like to turn the lights off in Piccadilly Circus for the first time since World War II, during the eleven month project.
