In conjunction with this year's Floating World theme, Burning Man participants will see themselves reflected in a pool, from which spring a spinning series of metallic fish as they participate in a feeding frenzy, bright shining CD lures as their prey. As the sculpture rotates, the many CDs, each on its own individual spinner, twist and turn constantly, sending rainbows of reflected and refracted light across the playa.  From a distance, there is a fountain-like aura as the light shimmers down.
Since we will be situated on the playa at the mouth of our home site, Pepe Ozan's Opera Arkapelago Camp, we hope to serve as a "lighthouse" for our Ark on the Playa.  From high atop the disco dome of Razzle Dazzle, a flashing red strobe light will rotate 360 degrees 24/7 to guide our Ship home from its adventures.

Razzle Dazzle is a kinetic sculpture composed of almost 100%  found objects, most of which were picked up curbside during our many drive by shopping forays.  Discarded lamps, ceiling fans, and lots and lots of forsaken CDs are some of the main elements of construction.  These photos show a piece still in progress.
