The Disorient Sign is a large rendering of the Disorient logo. The first Sign (83 feet long x 8 feet high, 2004) was made of 1/2 in. plywood and 391 LED clusters. Each letter was sequenced individually. Wood letters fabrication, LED assembly and light sequencing were all done collaboratively by dozens of Disorienters. After 2004, many other Disorient Signs were made. Here are some of them.

CoSign is made of wooden 3D pixels that connect together and are supported by pallet rack. Each pixel is about 30" wide x 30" tall x 8" deep.

Each camper is invited to participate by creating a pornj object (2D or 3D) that fits into one pixel. That object could be a description (sculpture, painting, written words, etc.) of their favorite Disorient memory. Some pixels could be used as dioramas for objects from the Disorient Museum.

Before the playa, the CoSign Cell organizes the fabrication and distribution of CoSign pixels (mostly grouped in 2x3 modules) to D20 campers. Each pixel is lit from the inside. The whole Sign is sequenced.

Once assembled, those pixels become the letters D-I-S. This 3 letter Sign supported by pallet rack becomes the frontage of Disorient camp at BM20.

Groups of 2x3 pixels are stackable for transportation and storage as shown on image above.

Small Sign (2006)

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 version of RGB).


Stealth Sign (2005)

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.

Small Sign (2005)

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.


Small Sign (2004)

Dimensions: 13ft. x 16in. x 1/2in.
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 (a nightclub in the space of the legendary Sound Factory).
