String Theory Dome coming to the playa 2012

Postby krolo » Thu Jul 12, 2012 3:11 am

So my story is this. I have been doing string art for mountain festivals in Colorado for a number of years. In 2010 I went to the apogaea regional and I saw all these domes that people were building and decided to make one for myself except to modify it for string art and thus the string theory dome was born. As if the blacklight string art was not enough I discovered through another exhibit using special chromodepth glasses my artwork pops out even further in a holographic way for a mind blowing experience. I would love to bring my dome to the playa as is but the dust will make it look like a lot of brown string. Last year I finally made it out to see the man burn and the glowie artwork inspired me further to use my knowledge of electronics to make my artwork come alive using fiber optics.

Here is a sample of the fiber optics that I have created.

Check out the pictures of the string theory dome at apogaea 2011 and 2012 http://www.facebook.com/String.theory.domeor http://www.krolotech.com/gallery3/

If you want to help bring it out to the playa my kickstarter is http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/krolo/string-theory-dome

one of my fav art projects as a kid was string art stuff..

we would get a piece of cardboard.. like 10inch square.. buncha kinds of thread and string and make fancy designs and stuff like in the pics .. make a buncha little notches/cuts in the board and run strings through it...really is cool..

Thanks for posting this! I heard you on BMIR late in the week talking about the project, but I was already getting caught up in the slipstream of end-of-week burns and breaking camp so I didn't get out there to see it in person. It looks great. And I think you're right, this is a really cool medium (side emitting fiber optics) that we'll see more and more of in BRC in the coming years. Great job!
