2020 – Lava Lounge Lightbox 2.0 Infinity Mirror Additions


Lava Lounge Lightbox 2.0 Infinity Mirror Additions


Ignition Philter helped us build our new light boxes last year and we were grateful for the opportunity to bring them to Ignition Philter’s fundraiser. We would like to upgrade them this year with the addition of infinity mirrors on all 4 sides. This will require new sheets of plexiglass and double the amount previously used, plus intelligent LED strips. They will plug into the existing controller and further mirror the dance floor, globalizer, and canopy intelligent lighting, fitting beautifully into our light show’s synergy.

Will it need power?


If it will need power, what is your power plan?

We already have power supplies in the light boxed and they plug easily into our existing Lava Lounge power grid run off our 58 kVA diesel generator.

Does the piece incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is it climbable?


If it does incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is climbable what is your safety plan? [(Note: if flame effects are used, your project will be subject to inspection by the Burnable Art Lead, who has final say if your project will burn during the event).]

The light boxes are essentially dancing platforms with the same 3/4″ lexan on the top that we use for our dance floor. We have safety protocols in a binder that is managed by our site ops / safety lead.

Have you completed any other large scale art projects? (In this media? Where and when? How did the project go? Do you have pictures or recordings?)

This will be completed at one of our upcoming Lava Lounge work days. The light boxes will be placed at Lava Lounge and removed when we tear down on Monday.

Optional but encouraged: detailed drawings, CAD files/SketchUp documents, sketches, or other graphic illustrations of your creative concept.

We would like the artists to give community workshops outside of Flipside. Do you think you have a workshop idea that could be provided to the community? If so, please tell us what it is.
