    Default Coachella 2013 ART INSTALLATIONS

    The interactive map on the Coachella app gives a little more insight into what the art installations are this year. For example:


    • That big black bug thingy? Its a mantis!
    • That weird metal chunky area next to the tesla towers? Its the Coachella Power Station!
    • That weird box at the base of the balloons with the trees and shit? Its a mirage!
    • Whatever you wanna call that twisty, lanterny thing at the side? Its called Sidewalks End and it's by Flux Foundations.
    • Still no clue what the fuck that snail is... I think I might already be in love with it though


    There are some hints on flux's page of what it might look like :https://www.facebook.com/fluxfoundation/timeline

    Maybe this will be a resurgence of art. So disappointed by last year.

    This was some of the best art I've ever seen at the festival.

    Particularly loved:
    - The snail
    - The mansion (we called it the Getty)
    - The power station with the hippos dancing inside
    - Tesla coils being back
    - The bamboo incline thing with the kaleidescopes...watched Lumineers/Dinosaur Jr. from up here and thought it was perfect
    - The Do-Lab, sound bleed issues aside, was gorgeous
    - The increased art in the campgrounds, the Silent Disco and the row of lights especially

    The snail was my favorite, seeing transform through the weekend with the different paintings on the shell, seeing it lit up, seeing it slowly cruising around different parts of the fest, seeing it lovingly shelter people from the wind Sunday night. Awesome!

    The sidewalk thing, or "the bridge to nowehere" as we called it was awesome as well, a great vantage point of the whole fest and a perfect meeting spot.

    I don't like this years "shrine" as much as last years though.
    2005, 2007, 2011, 2012 W1, 2012 W2, 2013 W1, 2013 W2, and SOON 2014 W1 & 2014 W2!!

    This years art was very cool.. Better than recent years. I seriously love the art as much as the music. It just looks so awesome on the polo fields.

    the modern house in the back of the main stage was the sickest art installation, love the virtual pools, saw guys laying down on it pretending to backstroke

    The house provided such an amazing sense of calm in the middle of all the madness happening around it. The 3D mapping was just so god damn beautiful. The first two times I walked around it I actually thought the pool in the middle was real haha.

    Here's an idea my gf and I had over the weekend: a big clock tower in the food court that can be seen anywhere inside the venue area. They could make it look really cool, and it would be helpful. I wear a watch during the fest, but it gets annoying having everyone asking me what time it was constantly. This way they could add art and gain functionality all in one.

    That would actually be pretty cool. My friends put up clocks at their campsite and printed out full page time-slots and laminated them and hung those up too.. Pretty useful.

    The do lab looks like a giant Jamba Juice billboard.

    Man, I'm kind of hoping they better locate some of the art this year. I felt like the the way back end of the main stage had to much going on. With the festival getting more and more crowded, I rather have the extra space.

    now someone respond with a dickhead comment. go
