SWARM at Coachella
Welp, that was a trip. We took preposterously complicated technology out to the huge music rave and made it work. It's not even art any more, it's a giant wobbly inverted pyramid of fiendish stuff that can and will break disastrously in front of people who paid us money to do it. (Not that you care, but did you know each Orb has eight microcomputers that all have to talk to each other?) We are stupid. But we're badass enough that we've done it and will do it again.
A particular highlight was taking our rolling robots to see Kraftwerk. I don't think they noticed us. Das ist OK.
