Fire-Beathing Dragon DJ Booth Lights Up the Night
November 2nd, 2011
This giant illuminated dragon looks like the lovechild of Tron and Burning Man given wings. If you were lucky, you would have seen this beast on Saturday, when artists Teddy Lo and Ryan Doyle showed off their art car at New York’s Robot Heart-O-Ween. It’s called Gon KiRin, which means “light dragon.”
It must have been a beautiful sight to behold in the dark of night, if these images do it any justice. The vehicle measures about 53 ft long and 23 ft tall and started off as a 1963 Dodge dump truck. It took over 2,460 ft of LED fixtures to get the effect you see and if that’s not enough, there’s also a DJ booth, a hydraulic neck for more dragon-ness and it can seat more then 20 people. Oh and thanks to a flamethrower, it breaths fire. If you have a dragon car, you need fire right?
If it looks familiar, this fire-breathing light dragon also made an appearance at Burning Man in 2010. This truly is one amazing-looking art car.
