A Collaborative Sign by Disorient 2022 campers
An installation by the CoSign Cell
Composed by The Eye in 2019

Description

Disorient's Collaborative Sign (CoSign) is made of clusters of wooden 3D pixels designed to be supported by a metal structure (pallet rack, scaffolding, etc.). Each pixel is a wooden box 23" wide x 23" tall x 11" deep.

For the collaborative aspect, beyond the fact that this Sign is fabricated by an evolving group of Doers, campers are invited to create a pornj object (2D or 3D) that fits inside a pixel (23" wide x 23" tall x 10" deep) and leaves room for the light in the center. That object is a visual and/or written description (sculpture, painting, collage, written words...) of their memorable Disorient experience. Some pixels could also be used as dioramas for objects from the Disorient Museum.

CoSign at D22

Cell lead: IceCream
After a successful "i" test at CCX, we present the "D" as part of the frontage of Disorient Camp at Burning Man 2022.

The letter "D" is composed of 54 pixels organized in clusters of 7 and 8 pixels. Those clusters are stackable for transportation and storage.

Lighting (spec'd by Vadim)

Here are 2 options for 54 individually addressable pixels depending on power situation.

Big generator

If this is near the big generator it’s really easy to do it with completely rentable gear.

DIMMER RENTAL
You rent this guy - it’s a 48x 2.4 kilowatt dimmer rack:
https://www.usedlighting.com/2008/etc-48-x-2k-sensor-rack-cem-
Then you add one of these:
https://www.usedlighting.com/47398/etc-sensor-12-x-2-4kw-dimmer-rack
It’s a 12 rack - so now you’re at 60 dimmers total

I gotta ask for a price quote. Renting big dimmers likely less expensive than buying small ones - unless you already have the small ones.

CABLE TO BULB
Then you use this type of cable to go to the bulbs:
https://www.usedlighting.com/86/12-14-multi-cable-150- (750 USD)
https://www.usedlighting.com/14467/edison-break-out-6- (140 USD)

Small generator

If it’s gotta run off a 7k put-put genny it’s gonna to be done off dimmers that would likely have to be purchased. If you’re out in playa and you’re using a small generator with a photo cell and or timer you need the type of genny that can kick itself on under load

DIMMER PURCHASE (2,000 USD)
You have to buy 10 of these and use regular zip (lamp) cord and I would just get a spool and connectors and custom make it for length.

DATA CABLE
Oh you would also need a data cable to link the dimmers -So you would need 9’ of these - these we can buy new or used - also re-usable

Common to both options (~1100 USD total)

CABLE (350 USD)

PORCELAIN SOCKET (150 USD)

BULB (220 USD)

CONNECTOR (175 USD)

SEQUENCE CONTROLLER (140 USD)
Then we can use my console or whatever computer gadget you want to generate the DMX sequence for whatever length you want - I usually aim for 10 minutes and make it look nice
And we can use one of these to essentially be the VCR that played the DMX show back over and over and over again on a loop:

You have to provide a microSD card for it

PHOTO CELL (40 USD)
Finally, you out it in a timer or a photo cell so that it turns on at dusk. And turns off at daylight. Or your run it forever or if it’s in camp you just go turn it on:
