Presenting, Maximena Alice Lee, MAL, the finest interactive, mechanical dragon I have ever worked on! A collaborative piece, created by Lauren Audette, Kit Rebecca, and myself, with the generous help of many friends, she had her public debut Saturday at Figment Boston and is there one more day before we package her up and bring her to Burning Man. Come see her this afternoon, Sunday, 7/28 in Boston on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
Our new friend, Ari, came by the studio today to help figure out the front gearing. And by “help” we really mean, “figure it will out and explain it to us.” He worked enthusiastically until the wee hours this morning, to bring our dream of an animated dragon to life. Here he is, taking the first ride on Maximena Alice Lee, and shown below working out the engineering with me tonight.
