One of my favorite experiences this burn was controlling these 500AMP spotlights wirelessly using a tablet. You drag your finger across the tablet screen and the spotlights move accordingly. Also these folks let me put on welders glasses so I could stick my face in front of the beam and see the arc light. It was scary as hell and my face got hot very fast but damn was it incredible! Thank you! (These we're previously military spotlights that would have infrared beams so the battlefield would be illuminated to soldiers wearing infrared goggles... In that situation the beams were invisible to the enemy.)



Project Flashlight

Project flashlight is the joy of light at grand scale.

Pure, incredibly bright white beam-like fingers of God in the dust, contrast with the night sky, scale across the open playa, interplay of beams, light in motion.

Military/NASA billion-candlepower searchlights, reanimated for art! Interactive with tablet controls.
