The Disorient Sign is a large version of the Disorient logo. It is 82 feet long x 8 feet high. The first version (2004) was made of 1/2 in. plywood and 391 LED clusters. Each letter is sequenced individually. Wood letters fabrication, LED assembly and light sequencing were all done collaboratively by dozens of Disorienters.

New version of the Small Sign.
A new set of pixels (the small Sign's own) was premiered on Saturday night at Burning Man 2005 when the Disorient Express was parked near the Man. This new set of pixels allows Disorient to display two Signs simultaneously. Each individual pixel in the new set is made of 3 colors: Orange, UV and white. Those three colors are known as OUW (Disorient's own RGB).
A smaller version of the Sign was used for Disorient's New Year's Day after party at Rumor. This party was named 5 in reference to changes made to the Sign for 2005. The S was replaced by a 5 and the 4 was replaced by a T going from DISORIEN4 to DI5ORIENT.
The small Sign at Compressor
In 2005 the letters D - i - 5 were mounted on the side of the Di5orient Express. It was said that the Di5orient Express was the most recognizable mutant vehicle on the playa.
In 2005 we also created a light version of the small Sign: the Stealth Sign. The main reason for the creation of the Stealth Sign is that we needed a Sign that could be carried and installed by a single person. The Stealth Sign is the same size as the small Sign. It is made with Christmas lights glued on clear polyethylene film. It has a total of 900 light bulbs.

A smaller version of the Sign, which uses the LED clusters of the big Sign, was created for Astral Slide, the New York Decompression party spearheaded by Disorient at Spirit.
