“The Machine” from the movie “Contact”

Postby august » Mon Sep 22, 2003 8:20 pm

I wanted to inquire about an installation I saw near center camp early in the morning following the burn. I was dancing under the “Kaleidosphere” and at one point I looked up and saw what appeared to be “The Machine” from the movie “Contact”. It totally blew my mind. (This was my first Burning Man and I was getting my mind blown often!) I went outside and stared at it for a long time with the thought that I would come back in the daylight to really check it out. Well long story short, my bike was stolen and we were leaving that afternoon and I never got back to see it again. (I can’t believe that I didn’t notice it on any of the days before …….. distracted by ground events I guess!!??)

I was hoping that someone could tell me about it and possibly give me a link to their site.

Thank you,
August
