Overview

Paraluna is a giant, spinning disc of LEDs. Classical music plays from speakers on the ground while complementary animated patterns are displayed on the disc above. The disc is held up by a boom lift, allowing the disc to be raised, lowered, and tilted, to dramatic effect.

Goals

Art is the most important part of Burning Man.

Process

I am the designer/engineer, but I couldn't make this art without the help of my friends.
