ULTIMATE PULSE | 2008 | Austin, Texas

Commissioned by First Night Austin 2008, the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration, UP was constructed of 1000 ready-made “Flashflight” LED Frisbees. The 35’ diameter temporary structure formed a serene and contemplative respite during the revelry leading up to the end of the year. One visitor described it as the “Rothko Chapel meets Tron”. Each disk, embedded with its own battery, LED, and chip, pulsed through random color cycles. Slowing shifting patterns of light mesmerized visitors while consuming only 600 watts.

Medium: 1000 Light-up flying discs (Frisbees), scaffold, rigging
Dimensions: 16’ x 20’ x 20’
Site: Auditorium Shores, Austin, TX
Client(s): First Night Austin
Budget: $10,000.00
