It was in 1965 that the artist Yoko Ono developed her concept of a LIGHT HOUSE and just two years later she was asked by John Lennon to build one for him in his garden; this was impossible though, as at the time the Light House was purely conceptual!
It would take little more than 40 years until Yoko Ono converted the once conceptual Light House into the very physical experience of the Imagine Peace Tower in memory of her beloved husband John. This year, on December 8th, we are commemorating the 40th anniversary of the premature departure of John Lennon.
The IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an outdoor art work in Iceland opened in 2007 to the public, that wants to send the message of love and peace to the world by means of light. The light beam of the peace tower is made by 15 searchlights, 6 smaller searchlights of 2kW and 9 bigger ones of 7kW.
All searchlights mount Xenon short arc lamps and these lamps are struck by means of IREM H.V Igniters AS-8030 and AS-16040.
