Does anyone know what ____ was called?

Post by chuckularone » Thu Sep 04, 2014 6:51 am

I'll start!

There was a piece of are on Esplanade that played music and a person would stand in front of and "conduct." It was about 10' wide x 25' tall covered with RGB LEDs. Moving closer to or farther from the art shifted the spectrum and "conducting" with your arms increased the height of lit LEDs.

It was amazing!

I saw that piece! I think it is called "art".

Does anyone know what it was called when you looked at the man from about 730 and G and, due to the alien siege machine, the man appeared to be wearing pants ?

What was the name of the car from Vegas with the 4 giant Tumbler batmobile tires on the back? Had a Chevy 350 engine in it (I think) and was made from what looked like all tube aluminum and steel.

The piece that was a spiraling stack of 2x4s? You could climb inside by going over the top of it. In the vicinity of Embrace, maybe? I have some photos of a wedding there and would like to try to connect with the couple.

That would be Brigid's Crossing.

From the Bay Area, I believe. Same people with the "Soul in the Machine" set-up...

Who designed the incredible wooden structures in the walk-in camping area?

There were a series of interlocking wooden huts that anyone could wander up to and sleep in. These then led to a massive, multiple story wooden structure that could be climbed and slept upon. It was probably two-thirds the height of the Temple and had an incredible crow's nest at the top made of cargo netting.

The Deep Playa Royal Walking Society discovered it late at night after the Man burn. It was totally unexpected and did not appear on any maps we had.

Answered my own question. Gregg Fleishmann, creator of 2013's Temple of Wholyness, made the incredible interlocking wood structures in walk-in camping this year.
So awesome, no one was there :)

In the Souk, there was this musical instrument that you could play by rubbing the glass tubes that hang beneath the brass (similar to how you can make a wine glass vibrate to play a note). Anyone know the name of the piece and/or artist?

edit: forgot the link to the pic:

Oh heck, that was at E-11 this summer. Utah. I can ask, but pretty sure it is "Acoustic Forest by Chris Coleman".

Does anyone know what artist did this structure, or the theme camp involved?

I was incorrect. It is "The Sonic Sculpture by John Ward".
