“We’ll tak a cup o’ Kindness yet” is a free to view installation by arts collective Open Close. Inspired by the idea that every small act of kindness is connected to another like it: a constellation of moments sparking new acts along the way. The Audience are invited to take part by adding their own act of kindness to the map and sharing a photo on social media.
The installation forms part of the wider “Burns and Beyond” festival in Edinburgh new for 2019, celebrating the work and life of Robert Burns in some of the capitals most well-known buildings and spaces.
We continued our relationship with Open Close by collaborating with artists Tamsin Ghislaine and Eileen Hall to provide the lighting effects for the installation. The specification called for fixtures suitable to be installed outdoors and exposed to the elements for the duration of the week long event, which we were able to provide from our rental stock.

“The Royal Bank 100 Women events were a huge success and we could not have done it without Black Light. Thomas and the guys felt like an extension of our team and did an amazing job turning our creative vision into a reality.
