Deptford railway bridge lighting
The lighting was designed by artist Peter Freeman and was chosen by local residents following a consultation on three design options.
The Rainbow Bridge lighting will have different colour combinations that will change on a monthly basis and reflect special days.
Deptford High Street light art programme
Colour programmes for each month
Each month will have its own light programme. These will be loosely based around the concept of very slowly moving rainbows and are designed to reflect the changing moods associated with the different seasons of the year.
January – slowly moving rainbow full spectrum.
February – slowly moving rainbow from centre out progressively two colours at a time.
March – slowly moving rainbow circular around the whole bridge.
April – spring colours with different pastel colours changing slowly in a random pattern.
May – rainbow slowly expanding from the centre of the bridge, four colours at a time.
June – single slowly changing colour under bridge with contrasting colours on the façade.
July – slowly changing pairs of colour: magenta, orange, aquamarine and yellow.
August – primary rainbow colours: façades and sides all contrasting colours.
September – slowly moving rainbow stretched out to give two colours at a time.
October – lights slowly scrolling through the rainbow a single colour at a time.
November – slow moving full spectrum rainbow from front to back of the bridge.
December – festive red white and green static colours.
These are colour programs with a strong simple colour signature to commemorate and celebrate important global and national days. The lights will change just for one day.
