Burning Man is putting a life sized kaleidoscope over the desert sky
Burning Man‘s latest art installation gives new meaning to “under the electric sky.” The week-long gathering is world famous for bringing some of the strangest, most awe-inspiring pieces of audio and visual art to Black Rock City each year. This year’s event, themed “The Carnival of Mirrors,” promises to bring the wildest installations that Burning Man has seen, including the Large Hadron Kaleidoscope Ceiling that may be one of the most cutting edge yet.
Featuring over 2,500 individually controlled LEDs fashioned into psychedelic arrangements and patterns overhead, the installation is attempting to amplify the lights’ constant shift in color with the help of mirrors around the exhibit’s interior, making for an immersive, trippy buffer between viewers and the dark desert sky above them. Paired with heart-prism glasses to take the kaleidoscope up another notch, viewers will be able to lounge underneath a canopy of never ending LEDs for a light show unlike any other.
