Introducing Psyport, the latest and greatest of Carey Thompson‘s series of amazing activated portals. This is one of the most potently inspiring projects I’ve ever had the pleasure of working on and in my mind there is no better pairing for my lighting then careys out of this world ancient future designs. This video was shot at both Lightning in a Bottle and Symbiosis Events festivals, music by Kalya Scintilla and edited by Charles Shaw. We also have a limited run of fantastic mini mandalas from the portal available at Carey Thompson. Enjoy!
Digital Ambiance and Tesseract brought us on board to do the lighting design and control for this amazing project. A fleet of Galactic Jungle Themed art cars for Burning Man. They were all wirelessly connected which allow lighting to be wirelessly synchronized, creating ripples of light and color that flow from one car to the next. This wireless system also allowed the cars to share and play the same music so the cars could become a mobile yet immersive party. The Lion art car was the centerpiece and housed a DJ booth and equipment and all the other cars would run formations around the Lion car creating a surround sound experience encompassing the crowd. Each car also had an integrated tablet and control panel that would show GPS locations of all the other carts at the event and enabled the carts to message each other (which is actually a challenge as there is no cell service at Burning Man)
We just released our brand new LED whip called the FIberflies Pixelwhip!
The fiberflies create a multi dimensional light show, sensually snaking and dancing across your body while simultaneously enveloping you in a cloud of playful pixie points of bright light.

This installation was a collaboration with Greco Decor for Club LIGHT in Las Vegas, a night club owned by Cirque du Soleil. The original installation was completed about a year and a half ago and we just finished a major update to the system. It is now completely controlled via an iPad running a Lemur OSC interface, effects, parameters, and colors can be manipulated on the fly. The interface was designed to allow the club to easily and quickly create a vibe specific to the event/client they are hosting in their space. The is done by allowing for easy color palate creation/manipulation to match corporate/holiday colors as well as on the fly effect creation and manipulation.
The fiberflies create a multi dimensional light show, sensually snaking and dancing across your body while simultaneously enveloping you in a cloud of playful pixie points of bright light. Sold individually.
New Features for FiberFlies version 2.0:
– Smooth swivel: our 2.0 design allows full 360 degree motion! This enables a whole new way to play: creating swirling helixes of pure galactic magic! All the ways you played with our last version flow smoother.
– A brighter product: each point is brighter and there are more of them.
– Better Fibers: more fibers give you a more substantial feel. Higher quality fiber makes them more durable: less tangle, smoother play.
– 1 year warranty
– Runs on 3 AAAs – 3 alkaline batteries included per FiberFly.
NOTE: We generally recommend rechargeable batteries, and you can use rechargeable NiMHs with your FiberFlies. However this version has not been optimized for rechargeables and will run slightly brighter with disposable alkaline batteries, which have a slightly higher voltage.
DO NOT use Li-ion AAA batteries! They have 3x the voltage and will destroy the FiberFlies light unit!

We gust got back from what is hands down our favorite festival… Enchanted Forest. It is a small and intimate gathering with a strong emphasis on dance, healing, transformation, and overall just taking good care of yourself and your body. We were brought on to do a major Lighting upgrade for the Enchanted Forest dance floor centerpiece, a Giant glowing Flower of Life Sculpture which is normally hung over the dance floor to illuminate all of the dancers. Due to an unexpected venue change and lack of tree infrastructure for hanging the flower was not able to be suspended in the air this year, so instead, we broke it up into 7 individual seed of life pieces and surrounded the dance floor with them.
We had the infinite pleasure of getting to do a lighting design collaboration with Visionary Artist Carey Thompson on his Honorarium Project for the Burning Man Center Camp.
