Diamond Tower (aka Diamond in the Sky) for BM 2010, by Mark Lottor

A 40 foot tall rhombus shaped tower, consisting of 32 vertical strings of 48 lights on its outer surface (1536 lights).

Partial funding provided by a Burning Man Art Grant.

As seen at Burning Man 2010

The Diamond Tower was a visual success, but the tower was not structurally sound. A new tower design will be worked on with the hope of showing this piece again in the near future.
