WORD UP - Bright fluorescent light word at Burning Man

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Burning Man : One Thread

What did everyone think of the WORD UP project, which was the 20 foot 4 letter word made of flourescent lights that people could change to whatever they wanted?

I hadn't really seen anything like that at Burning Man before. I thought it was good but some people didn't think it was arty enough...

Apparently a Ranger told the artist to not allow anyone to put up the real time on the display because Burning Man didn't want anyone to be conscience of the time.

I thought it was clever and cool... It was interesting to glance over and see what people were doing with the 4 letters they had at thier disposal over the course of the night.
