A 2014 Burning Man, Lucidity, and Lightning In a Bottle art project. 90% recycled from the Peace Wall.
The Transporter is made up of 16 hexagonal shaped glowing frames. Each frame will be 4ft x 4ft wide and 3 inches thick, interconnected by wooden spacers. The art project will be elevated to approximately 12ft using a suspension pulley system supported by 4 aluminum poles.
The materials to make the project will be 90% recycled from our previous art project, The Peace Wall.
The frames will be constructed from wood and Multiwall Polycarbonate sheets. Each frame will also contain 90 LEDs that will illuminate the project at night.
There will be also be an interactive sound element that will affect the lighting of the entire piece. The Trasporter will react to the ambient music, transforming it into an impressive light show. The lighting design will be controlled by the ChipKit Uno32 (Arduino) device or an optional DMX controller.
We raised another $3500 through a combination of a KickStarter Campaign and festival contributions.
This art project is being built as a collaborative effort through the blood, sweat and laughter of:
Abram Santa Cruz – Lead Conceptual Lead Artist
Mike Wong – Structural Engineer
Dylan Cummings – LED Technical Designer
Kari Jahner – Helping Hand/Builder
Dre McGee – Helping Hand/Builder
Janet Lé Shé – Helping Hand/Builder
Jensen Moon – Helping Hand/Builder
