Description of Project
Originally funded for Alchemy 2015, The Narwhal is a scooter based art car shaped like a narwhal with sound reactive lighting. It tows the DiscoFish Jr., a modified bike trailer shaped to look like a lantern fish. DiscoFish Jr. carrying an arsenal of special effects including a professional grade bubble machine, disco ball, smoke machine, lasers, and a 120W PA System that allows for a portable Disco throughout the burn.
""I love the spontaneity that an art car passing creates. I will never forget the first time the funk pirateship drove by me at my first burn at Alchemy. I've noticed that this magical element was missing from some of my favorite reigionals and so I hoped to bring this to future burns by building an art car that was small enough to easily navigate the roads of La La Lavender Farms, Maddox and Deerfields. The discofish turns any field into an instant mobile dance party.
One night at PreHeat, the Narwhal and Disco Fish pulled up to the effigy and sparked one of the biggest dance gatherings of the burn. After a few songs we took the party on the move through the streets until getting. It was one of my favorite burn moments ever.
The sound can be cut on the disco fish and it's special effects can instantly enhance any theme camps set up. The mobility of the giant bubble machine has made for some amazing moments.
The speaker system can be also used as a PA system in case rangers need to get an emergency message out.""
Other: "I've put my heart and soul into this ridiculous thing and I'd love nothing more than to finally share it with my burner friends and family at Alchemy.
I will continue to bring the Narwhal or some sort of art using the materials provided for years to come. It might seem like I'm asking for a ridiculous amount of money for a tiny scooter but the few times I've had a chance to take this thing into a crowd have justified every penny I've spent on it.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions."
