GHOST is the luminous fossil-remains of a mythical aquatic creature, once a denizen of the prehistoric Lake Lahontan. The dry lake bed is now the alkaline floor of the Black Rock Desert: one of the flattest places on Earth.
I was honored to design this for implentation into a project entitled L3K run by an art and technology collective called the Mad-Scientists, led by "Wizard" Tim Black.  This year, the project consisted of a 2000 foot ring of shifting LED patterns, including cellula automata "ringpets," dashed in the center of the former lakebed now known as the playa, around the Man.
The project will be adding various interactors to control and create light sequences in realtime, and the GHOST will function as one of them.
