Day 2 of the EDC Soma Build!

we just got home from Day 2 of Electric Daisy Carnival build! yesterday we got off to a delayed start, and without our charms, connections and charismatic swaying powers we might still be way behind schedule… but fortunately we have a crack team and some great friends down here, namely those who could lend us a crane plus an operator to hoist the axon into place (thanks, Dan, Fix It, and Margaret!).

we’re building Soma on a grassy lawn right in front of the LA Memorial Coliseum, which hosted the Olympics in ’32 and ’84. they’re extremely particular about the health of their grass, and we’ve had to cover the ground with giant sheets of plywood in order to drive any equipment around. they’ve also lined huge areas with tall metal fences, and rerouted delivery traffic, including the propane delivery truck. this photo is our 500 gallon propane tank being hoisted up and over a fence into our installation area. hooray propane fairy.

but despite the restrictions, we’re having a fun time busting ass to get our art up in the air. and there is nothing as gratifying as scrubbing your whole body with Gojo at the end of the day. tomorrow we’ll be set up the fuel depot, hook up the plumbing and electronics, then do lots and lots of testing. another busy day before the event starts!
