Max and I pleased to announce a new project we’re working on for this years Burning Man called the Temple of the Unticketed. We recently passed the first hurdle of getting a grant from Burning Man Arts and are working on submitting a full proposal now.
The Temple of the Unticketed brings people together, even if they can’t make it to Burning Man. The installation encourages participants both on and off playa to contribute four frame photo vignettes which are displayed on 512 backlit LCD screens attached to eight freestanding structures.
We’re using a BeagleBone Black to drive blocks of 16 screens, which was a real challenge using the onboard PRUs. Max figured out a way to hack the GPMC to jam data, he’ll post more on that later.
We’ll keep posting updates to the NYC Resistor blog. You can find out more at templeoftheunticketed.net and check the source on our GitHub
