Curtis Killorn (CO)

Installation Artist

Born and raised in California I have lived most of my life in the beautiful mountains of Salida, Colorado. Attending four years in art school and moving on as a freelance artist, book illustrator, commercial designer, art director/instructor and also the painter of many murals and outdoor creations. I owned and operated a large restaurant for ten years which allowed me to be challenged in every way possible. I have actively participated in Burning Man on many creative levels since 2003, and it continues to be a source of inspiration and rejuvenation. I have always worked as an artist in every field of my life and look forward to what is next, while remaining in the “present now” the best I can. In the last few years my work has been featured in many publications and sites: •Denver Post •Channel 5 News •The Huffington Post •WIRED •High Country News •The Mountain Mail and many web sites.

El Diablo DelFuego

Love is a burning thing And it makes a fiery ring. Bound by wild desire I fell into a ring of fire. I fell into a burning ring of fire, I went down, down, down as the flames went higher And it burns, burns, burns, The ring of fire, the ring of fire.

Arial Silk Dancing

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly, "Girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

 

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

 

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

 

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

 

In a couple of years they have built a home, sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

 

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

 

Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

 

In a couple of years they have built a home, sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones, hey

 

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

 

Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

Pixel Plane (CO)

LED Visuals

As necessity is the mother of invention, PixelPlane began as a response to the need for affordable, modular, controllable LED 2D arrays. We had been using an LED tile from ColorKinetics (owned by Phillips) called an “icolor module fx” to build custom mobile lighting stage rigs and interactive sculptures. This 6 inch square tile worked great, but is discontinued, very costly, and limited when it comes to scaling to large applications. Not to mention that it requires $1000s in software just to control it. After extensive research, we could not find a replacement product that suited our needs, so we decided to just make it!

We are 2 friends putting our heads together to create fun and easy LED systems that are completely integrated from the fixture, to the controller, to creative software control.

Leo Ascarrunz is an Electrical Engineer and co-founder of Jagged Sound. Aaron Wilson is a Software Engineer, and co-founder of AudioPixel. The goal is to create something that is easy enough for a beginner “maker” to setup up and operate, but also robust and versatile enough to stand up to architectural and industrial applications.

We acknowledge that there is a void, or middle space between cheap Chinese LED strips that are delicate and clunky to arrange in a 2D matrix and expensive PRO LED walls that start at tens of thousands. PixelPlane fills that void.
