    Default What was your favorite Art in 09 ?

    I dont think anyone has started a thread about this , so i will ask . What was your favorite Art this year ? Im not sure what it was called , but mine was the cube of lights that shape shifted . I found myself sitting in front of it each night , being in a trance . If you watched it from the side , it looked like the lights were coming right at you , 3d . There was a lot of others too , but that one i remember the most . I think it was located by the Mojave tent . Post some videos too , if you have any .

    You liked the quad cubetron.

    I remember Saturday night really liking the elastic sponge illuminated greatness. Oh and those crazy little floating bots that went up and down and you could walk through. fucking wonderland. love it.

    The snake was totally awesome.

    The Tesla Coils disappointed me, I thought they were bigger.

    I love few things in this world more than I love the Serpent Mother. I would marry it if I could afford a fireproof giant snake tux.

    serpent mother > everything

    seriously. we got there during the day "hey cool metal dinosaur thing". then night comes, we're walking along, my friend says "dude, the dinosaur is on fire". when we walked up to it and i realized you could just stand in the middle while flames are shooting up all around you i was just blown away

    the rest of the art really was very impressive tho. it was nice to see all fresh stuff this year, excluding the tesla coils and the cubeatron of course but those are part of the coachella experience by now.

    cubeatron was even more amazing this year. the sponge, the do lab made of pallets, the tower, it was all fantastic


    did anyone see a decent showing of the tesla coils before last thing sunday night? im not sure if my timing was off but it seemed like each time it would start we would run over and it would stop after not even a min, then they would be looking at it like they were trying to figure out wtf was wrong

    serpent mother
    though i enjoyed the twin tesla coils
    and i really liked la familia divina-shrine
    also near sphae there were some other cool metal lights that i thought were really pretty.
    the fact that all these cool art installations are at coachella is one of my favorite things about it. i love it when it gets dark out and all these things start to light up.
    i managed to get to see the tesla coils go properly a few times. they'd sort of let it run for a few minutes, then check everything, then do it again. i watched it about 3 times and then moved along to let other people get close, since i was right by the fence.
    i got some photos and a video clip on flickr. right now my video clip is rotated so i have to fix that.

    If you guys like this stuff, then you will absolutely adore Burning Man. 95% of the art at Coachella was at Burning Man this last year. There are pieces out there that are even bigger and more amazing than what was seen at Coachella this year. Coachella does a really great job, better than most festivals. I was impressed.

    My favorite was definitely the flower behind the Sahara. Those floating bots looked like detached cartoon noses. They kind of freaked me out all weekend.

    Would this fireproof giant snake tux be for you or for the Seprent Mother to wear? I think I may be able to hook you up with some very affordable options. And how flameproof? I mean does it need to be reuseable afterward? Not enough weddings go with the "burn off your wedding dress/tux in a display of your joy" finale, you know.

    i've thought about it a few times but without the music i think i'd get kinda sick of "hey look theres people dressed like frogs riding bikes that are on fire!" after a few days

    i come to coachella for the music, the art is just a big added bonus

    The serpent mother really blows everything else out of the water, a truely stunning piece of artwork.

    I also loved the elastic plastic sponge at night and was lucky enough to meet the artist and get lots of pictures taken with his sculpture.

    I know! I'm sure I walked right past it during the day without a second glance but Saturday night I was wandering around enjoy my mushroom fry and when I came across those things I flipped out. They started to move up and down on the cables or whatever! Those and the elastic sponge at night were so bad ass. I walked all the way around that thing just tripping out.

    And yes - serpent mother was unreal and I guess I am kicking myself in the ass for looking at it on the board beforehand. It kinda ruined the whole surprise of it being on fire at night.

    That temple was pretty freaking rad. I especially like the drawings on the walls. Also, robots.

    Serpent Mother, Cubatron and the mirror flower at the Sahara were my favs. Everything was great though.

    There is tons of free music. There are not the huge bands that there are at Coachella but there are huge DJ's that play out there. Names like Carl Cox, DJ Dan, Bassnectar, Freq Nasty, Paul Oakenfold, and Random Rab to name a few.
    The experience is much different from Coachella but a lot of the open-minded, artsy vibe is the same. I do however understand when it is not really someone's thing.
