serpent twinsAs we get closer and closer to the Playa this year we are excited to see The Serpent Twins coming back to the Playa with all new costuming, lighting and fire effects. We are pleased that they are using lots of Total Control Lighting Pixels.  The Jormungand (Midgard) and Julunggul (Rainbow) serpents sit between 2 worlds; the old world that needed and revered them and the present which has shunned such monsters as fears metamorphosed into mythical form. The two 50-foot kinetic mobile sculptures are rendered in metal and cast off materials using modern science; restoring ancient mythos to our Playa community.

Luminous Passage 2.0 is coming to the Playa in 2012 and Cool Neon is proud that they are lighting up the sky with Cool Neon EL Wire.  Luminous Passage 2.0 is a 200’ long structure consisting of a minimal and elegant cable systems used to support electroluminescent wire composed in such a way as to create a porous “land bridge” taking people around the Playa. Luminous Passage offers the audience a transition from the hardscape of the urban environment to the open and natural spaces we find on the open playa.

We look forward to seeing this magnificent structure on the Playa this year.
