Snarl

Snarl

There is presently a new exhibit, Snarl by Mac Kanashimi, to be seen on LEA 13. It looks like a huge (4060 meters high) tangle of colorful circular snippets carelessly tossed together in a large bunch. The artist notes that snarl looks like a messed up thread, fiber, vine, etc., curls at random in every direction, uses about 5000 objects, 3 prims per object, is four kilometers high, has unique prim colors, lightness has the slowest cycle making Snarl go from light at its tail to dark at its head, saturation has a faster cycle than lightness, hue has a faster cycle than saturation, breaks down at least once a day from tail to head and rebuilds and uses HSL to RGB conversion. We found that flying to the highest point and then free-falling to the ground made for an amazing experience. This installation will be open until the end of the year, head over and take a look.
