If we organize the grid before we reach the playa, the set up should be self organizing. The trick is pixel color. Thought would be have a device that could unwind/wind thin twine - automatically measure off 1meter lenghts. Then we could spray paint them according to the graphic. Then when we get th...

Lets see... if they start popping out... and someone grabs the end... the headlines would read: "Burner goes flies a kite... by the wrong end... end up with aerial picture of entire event..." Yep you make a good point. Maybe making the sections of pixels limited by a small number would prevent this ...

I was thinking that a quicker, far stronger way, was to attach the pixels to two ropes (hemp twine - thus burnable). One on each side (say left and right sides). The fabric would be folded over on those sides and stapled with office staplers... perhaps 5-10 staples along each 1metre length. then the...

Re: But I forgot about division!

a) Pixel Placement: I would suggest some system to pre mark the pixels. Spray paints on rope laid across the ground would seem to be easy. So the grid would be laid out on the playa... you just make the pieces cover the guide ropes marked with the right color. That could work. I hadn't really consi...

Sputnik:

Where are we on co-ordinating with Space Imaging? Are we paying them to take a picture, or just assuming they will be capturing the picture... (or just using an airplane).

Curious...
Brad.

Re: But I forgot about division!

Division of effort that is. Right now there are about 75 people signed up to bring pixels. We can get almost 10 people on site at any given time if we run 8 work shifts of 4 hours each. 10 x 23 seconds = 230 seconds which is 4 minutes per pixel per person for the full size image. More hands make li...
