The nice folks at Beakerhead, an annual celebration of the intersection of science, engineering and art, have invited my collaborative group, 5 Ton Crane, to install the Ray Gun Gothic Rocket at this year’s event in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
This will be the first installation since she came down from her long exhibition on the SF Embarcadero pier. It will also be our fifth time installing her.
The last two weeks have been busy in space dock as we have been making all the necessary tune-ups and retrofits to get her polished up for her next big appearance. It will be fun to see her stand over a crowd of curious onlookers once again. I am also looking forward to checking out what our northern neighbor’s have in store for us.
If you are in the Calgary section of our solar system from Sept 11th-15th, then make sure to drop in and say hello. If you can’t, then check back here and her twitter feed throughout the event for the latest.
