The Orb debuts at Firefly

Inspired by the multidimensional Orb of Agamotto that appears in the Marvel universe, this project began as a joint-double-dare and weird idea generated by Lark Russell, an ex comic book writer. I of course offered to paint it and supply lighting, and a 4-foot giant floating rotating orb was born. We received some grant funding from Firefly Arts Collective and the Orb had its first appearance at Firefly in Vermont, July 2019. New plans are for some technical improvements, including new light sequence programming. We also gratefully acknowledge the fabrication skills of Damien Connolly, and rigging assistance from Phil Servita of Flying Squirrel Consortium.
