Kym Illman lives on the kind of street where neighbours compete with each other to put the most Christmas lights on their houses, apparently. “Section one of the arch fades down while section two comes up, fades down,” says Kym, interestingly. “You have to physically program those 32 different individual channels.” He spent 200 hours doing this thing.
