The Legend of Sleepy Howell Presented by Illuminatus Lasers
The Legend of Sleepy Howell Vortex is a combination of Neon Captain Radiator output and Nisha Ramnath imagery. The Horseman was run by Pangolin Quickshow software and projected by custom X-laser projector built by Bob Snyder. Illuminatus Chief Engineer Wayne Gillis ran the Radiator through a Kvant CM3000.
We had only received our Radiator the week before (thanks, Chris!), so the vortex patterns were presets manipulated by Wayne. We commissioned Nisha to create the graphic, and a similar animation for the entrance, and she responded immediately with this great image. Thanks, Nisha!
The projection was terminated on a ~9'x9' screen that was created by Zita Gillis, our Fabric-ator. Michigan's Complete Production Services provided the heavy-duty crank tower that supported the screen, ballasted with two 50gal. drums filled with lake water.
Here is a shot looking upwards into the beams while it was raining. The Radiator output is on the left, the approaching Headless Horseman is on the right.
The Legend: To move from place to place, and time to time, the Horseman uses a magical wormhole called the Vortex. This is a mind-buckling fluxification of bent spacetime through which the Horseman emerges into our era and area.
