Playa flies - see them in action!

Playaflies by Michael Brown and the Chinchilla camp.

Check my other photos of the Playa flies.

Playa flies are bicycle mounted color-morphing light sculptures. They are made of ping-pong balls attached to wires hanging from a flexible mast attached to a bicycle. The ping-pong balls contain color-morphing LED's similar to those used in the cubatron. There were a dozen bicycles equipped like that on the playa.
