The Lightladder is an interactive light installation inspired by Bath’s topography.

Designed by Splash Content in collaboration with Luke Woodbury and Mud, the project comprises two parts: 1) a physical installation made from 92 original Victorian bottles each containing an LED; and 2) the website,, which acts as the medium through which unique lighting effects may be created.

The was inspired by Bath’s many hills. Twenty-three rows of bottles represent the 230 meters between the city’s lowest and highest points. The bottles are illuminated by touching, tapping or clicking on different areas of the map on The higher the elevation, the more rows of bottles light up.
