TRANSPORTER

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.

From the underneath, the project will look like a molecular structure with changing colors.

The Interactive Element

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.

Funds Raised

We will start off with a total budget of $2,100. We have a commitment of $200 from Lucidity and we will be looking to raise another $3,000 to $5,000 through a combination of a kickstarter campaign and festival contributions.
