Solitary Inflorescence

The petals were projection mapped with
a myriad of natural imagery.

 

Solitary Inflorescence

This enormous flower debuted at Coachella 2012.
Built around an articulating aerial man lift it rose
140' above the crowds, dancing in the night's sky.
Camera men could sometimes be found in the petals
capturing an unparalleled perspective of the festival.

SOLITARY INFLORESCENCE

by: Poetic Kinetics

Solitary Inflorescence was the realization of a long time dream to re-engineer our 80′ giant flowers to fit the taller 125′ articulating aerial man lifts.  The flower’s petals are composed of hand formed steel and aluminum tubing with custom sewn & draped fabric panels.  The sculpture features color changing LED lighting and video projection onto the petal surfaces.
