Less than a month ago, I got to attend Burning Man for the first time (!). It’s not hyperbolic to say that I had the best week of my life there, and it certainly gave me enough stories to last me until the next Burn. To use a metaphor from statistical thermodynamics, it felt like we were all particles in a high-energy plasma (or in a fire, I suppose); as such, we had a good chance to frequently bounce off of each other and experience serendipitous transcendental interactions, one after the next. Ask me about it sometime =)
One incredible opportunity gifted to me by the massive New York sound camp Disorient via their very pornjy brother Jacob Joaquin AKA opcode appeared in the form of a Facebook message asking for programmers to write Processing sketches to animate the 500+ meters of LEDs on the camp’s signature structure, the Pyramid.
