Psychedelic Liquid Lights Projections & Art
LIQUID dot LIGHTING sandwiches liquid oil projections and analog effects to create psychedelic displays of color. Hit us up to discuss your liquidlight project or license any of our work.
Since 2014, artist Brian Moss' creative juices have been ebbing and flowing—from painting—to making liquid light shows with friends & playing with colored fluids. Dripping dyes and themes of water can be seen throughout his pen & ink paintings, so this has been a natural progression which started early in life.
The moniker LIQUID dot LIGHTING is also the project's URL—www.liquid.lighting—this webpage serves as a placeholder. One day we'll have a proper studio setup to create topnotch work & stream live liquid webcasts along with a website.

LIQUID STAGE PROJECTIONS
Myself, along with Kevin McNeill and other friends have performed a number of lightshows in collaboration with a variety of bands & artists. Although our form differs from traditional shows, we generally combine old-school 60's techniques utilizing plates on overheads, and layer that with custom oil wheels (see below). Depending on the music—live video, synthesizers, feedback, and other analog elements may also be incorporated. Each performance is tailored to the energy of the crowd & unique sound of the band.
We are presently taking a break from live gigs.
Featured below are a few examples to demonstrate range. View in HD if possible.
In 2014, we teamed up with Mercy Creek & Kevin McNeill to film 7 videos at The Camel in RVA. We painted a dynamic sea of colors that complimented Kevin's kaleidoscopic video editing and the bands diverse range. View the full length 7 song session »
PROJECTOR OIL WHEELS
Brian Moss fabricates flat oil filled discs, seen spinning in some of the videos above. When rotated slowly in front of Optikinetics, Aldis Tutor, and similar oil projectors, wheels create a sea of moving colors. LIQUID dot LIGHTING wheels are constructed of plexiglass instead of glass for durability, and use magnets in place of screws which takes just a second to change.
LIQUID LIGHTS SHADOW WALLS
LIQUID dot LIGHTING has provided site lighting for a number of awesome festivals and events. In addition to hosting interactive hands-on liquid light playshops, we can create shadow walls as seen here with the oil wheels as seen above. This provides a consistent flow of ever-changing colors which can run continuously from dusk til dawn.
Party revelers can continue dancing—even without music or after curfew—while creating shadows for others to watch. These projections are universally loved by all ages. We can provide toy swords & other shadow props.
