Magic and Mr. Fixit engineered and fully executed this magnificent feature of the Ein Hammer project. When the sides of the hammerhead open, flood lights reflect off of mirror panels on the inside of them, resulting a cascade of spinning white light that will make it look somewhat like a flaming disco ball. Details on the project website at www.einhammer.org

Thanks, KnowMad. Our 4th of Juplaya field test was a five-by-five proof of concept with flame diameters reaching up to 100 feet in length. Looks like our propane budget is going to need some help. Check out the new Kickstarter:



With gratitude,

Damned if i know. Probably simultaneous, and if we meet it's because the santas go after me. I'm not a particularly ambitious rampager.

Rotwang Auditions for Actors that will control Ein Hammer

Post by Mister Jellyfish Mister » Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:09 pm

Re-posted with a song in my heart:

Greetings, dear thespians, comedians and those with stage acting experience. We are now casting actors to play the part of "Rotwang The Inventor" from the Metropolis film that will run the show of the honorarium art installation, Ein Hammer, including the giant flame effects. Here's a link to the project details: www.mutantvehicle.com/ein_hammer.htm and here's a bit of the melodramatic stuff we're looking for (spoken improv will be added):

[youtube][/youtube]

Please send me a private message right away if you have an interest and I will send you links to our director's training videos. Auditions can be sent in on video or youtube and must be received by July 31st for consideration. Break a leg!

-Mister Jellyfish.

Ein Hammer Kickstarter

Post by Mister Jellyfish Mister » Tue Jul 27, 2010 8:10 am

How’s your summer heating up? As for ours in the Ein Hammer crew, things are sizzling along quite well indeed!

The project is now 85% complete, and we’ve run into some unanticipated costs. If you can’t help with even a small pledge to this magnificent Burning Man art installation, no problem. Either way, please consider forwarding this message to every Burner you know as we make our final push to the playa for art, interaction, fire and fun the likes of which you’ve never, ever seen before. Here’s a link to our fundraiser with videos of our progress and lots of super-swag rewards for you and your Burner friends:

Whoops. If I were actually planning this, instead of having a start and an ending for time and place, I'd give you ideas of what our route is so you might have a chance to catch up.
Of course, because I" so slapdash, it might not be worth much as mad scientist rampages go.

You do know that St. Pauli is the red light district of Hamburg, don't you?
(Which doesn't actually preclude the giggling "schoolgirl" thing, I suppose.)

Woot- Diddy-Woot Woot! Woot! Our Kickstarter funding goal has been met, so Ein Hammer is now fully funded! Deep gratitude to our contributors, and there's still time left to earn Ein Hammer uber-swag with your pledges. Any additional funding will go toward food for the crew up to and during set-up on the playa. Please copy and paste the following link in a message to your Burner friends:

Many thanks to the many E-Plyans who supported the Ein Hammer project from its original inception to the final manifestation on the playa. The 42 member crew and I had a marvelous time, and everybody appeared to get the joke. Final report and images on the project website: www.mutantvehicle.com/ein_hammer.htm
