1. An interactive system for controlling redirectable lighting in a lighting environment, comprising:
an interactive display having a representation of said lighting environment, said representation including at least one repositionable lighting representation;
said repositionable lighting representation associated with at least two redirectable light sources and including a first light source representation, a second light source representation, a first lighting effect representation and a second lighting effect representation;
said first light source representation including at least one of a source variable size and a source variable shading corresponding to a current value of an adjustable lighting parameter of a first redirectable light source of said at least two redirectable light sources;
said first lighting effect representation including at least one of an effect variable size and an effect variable shading corresponding to a lighting effect of said first redirectable light source at a current position of said first lighting effect representation, which is repositionable, wherein a location and size of said first lighting effect representation is based on a distance between an object illuminated by said lighting effect and said first redirectable light source,
wherein an adjustable lighting parameter of a second redirectable light source of said at least two redirectable light sources is altered in response to a motion gesture, in or on said display, altering a position of said second lighting effect representation with respect to said second light source representation while said second light second representation is stationary.
