BIG POLLINATOR SCULPTURE
A kinetic, interactive sculpture, participants are invited to turn geometric, beehive inspired "gears", making art and analogy from machinery and motion. The sculpture will burn on the playa this year, with spinning gears igniting each other in succession. At approximately 20 feet high, Big Pollinator seems to hover in the air, a machine of flower-like modules spinning in synchronicity. Interior lighting and the shape of the modules create an interplay of lights and shadows between the "flowers", making hexagons appear and disappear, ephemeral patterns suggestive of a beehive.
