This project was successfully funded on August 14, 2014.

An interactive kinetic installation for Burning Man 2014.

About this project

Fata Morgana Girando is an installation for people who want a moment of peaceful interaction at Burning Man 2014. There will be 4 reclining sofas to sit or lie on while interacting with a group of people. The group gently controls the course of a rolling bowling ball and experiences a mesmerizing light show.

The light show is run by a mini computer that controls a set of 999 color LEDs spread around the bowling ball's circular path.

Why circles?

Circles come and go and are ever present in our lives. They show us that we can park our ambitions for a moment in time and just let the world go round.

Risks and challenges

Our budget needs have grown over the course of the project. Currently we have most of the supplies needed to finish fabrication. We have yet to purchase power for the lights and various hardware.

With your help we can reimburse the founders for a portion of what they have already spent, purchase what is needed to finish the project, and defray some of the costs associated with transporting the project from Tacoma, Washington, to Black Rock City.

Thank you so much for your support!
