Looking for the name/info of an installation from Metropolis

Postby lefty » Fri Dec 10, 2010 12:10 pm

There was a dome about 50-100ft outside of Root Society that was controlled by a gerbil ball with presumably a Wii controller in it. As the ball was passed around the dome, it triggered various sensors that contributed to visual and aural shifts. Does anybody know what I am talking about?

It wasn't part of Root. It was it's own installation.

Good thought. If nothing else turns up then I'll give them a holler.

If you are refering to the large sphere that had flame effects, that would be PYROSPHERE.

Not the pyrosphere. This was a bit more hidden. I wish I could remember what direction is was in but I think it was past Root, on the way to the deep playa.

He's talking about the Seizure Dome. I forget the name of the artist/crew that did it, but they're out of NYC.

The video doesn't do it any justice at all. I was in there for a good half hour, & basically had to be peeled out of there. :P
