The Resurrection of the Prismatic Pyramid

Post by Ed Wesly » Tue Oct 04, 2022 4:35 pm

This past summer John E. Bannon and I collaborated on one of the coolest pieces either of us has ever been involved with, The Prismatic Pyramid., a 4 meter high rainbow projecting galvanized steel and Plexiglas structure fit for Ramses or Nefertiti but not installed in The Valley of the Kings but on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago.

Unfortunately it got vandalized by a roving gang of thugs before we could properly document it in all its glory so that we could have an excellent advert for us to shop it around to install it at other festivals around the world and universe, or maybe even find it a permanent home.

So we have initiated a Kickstarter, and invite you all to check it out, and see if it isn't in your heart to help resurrect the Pyramid, as you will be rewarded with a recycled triangular tile from it, a priceless piece of holographic history, guaranteed none the worse for wear and tear and still capable of projecting rainbows, plus a brand new uncut 35 by 43 centimeter (14" X 17") full sheet Holographic Optical Embellishment from the next production batch that this Kickstarter enables! Both of them are equally adept in transforming sunlight into rainbows, as well as Xmas tree lights, LED's, neon signs, street lights, etc. More fun can be had beaming laser pointer beams through them and then looking at the spots on the wall through them! And molten chocolate can be poured on it to create scrumptious rainbow flavored treats!

Here is what the swag can do:
