Louisville lasers take Cincinnati, OH

A welcomed light.

Blue, purple, green, and white lasers shoot narrow streams of light between two brick buildings over a crowd as part of a light show.

This past weekend Blink, the US’s largest light, art, and projection mapping experience, lit up over 30 blocks in downtown Cincinnati, OH — and Louisvillians Ryan Daly + Garrett Crabtree Jr. represented Derby City.

The award-winning duo that makes up Lapis Laser Display specializes in original laser compositions and installations — you might have seen their work at The Holiday Laser Dome, the Louisville Ballet’s production of “Swan Lake,” + more.

Their installation at this year’s Blink fest filled the alleyway next to Cincy’s 21C Museum Hotel. The show featured eight lasers, 16 mirrors, 40 DMX flood lights, and six hazerswhich are similar to fog machines and needed in order to see the lasers at work — and was set to house music mixed by Garrett.

Catch Ryan and Garret’s next laser endeavor at the Mega Cavern’s annual Lights Under Louisville opening on Fri., Nov. 11.
