Arcade Bells at Burning Man 2011

I created this solar powered piece called “Arcade Bells” a couple of years ago, and after tweaking the software a bit, I brought it to Burning Man in 2011. It was installed out in deep playa a ways off 2:00. The sun affects the way the sounds evolve over time, as they change with the hour.

Sadly, this piece was destroyed shortly after the install by an art car, much like the one shown at the end of this clip.

At Burning Man, you should always make sure your artwork can be seen from a distance, isn’t too low to the ground, and is very well lit at night. I broke those rules and paid my dues. Lesson learned.
