Once again, I was part of the laser team that brought fun expressions of columnated light to campus - and some of the photos below actually made the front cover of the University Record, both online and print!
This time it was on the North Campus Diag & Lurie Tower as part of the College of Engineering's localized campaign kickoff event. I worked with Holly Taylor & others at the CoE to help get things organized for the local Illuminatus team that did the Lumia lasers on Lurie Tower and the Daystar team from New York/California that brought in the big guns.
I also ended up handling the video projection part of the program, which was really no surprise; the laser guys were pretty busy, having lost a set up day/night due to bad weather and scheduling delays.
I had help in the form of someone holding an umbrella over me and the projector and the laptop screening the kickoff video.
Here are a few photos of the event and links to more. Stay tuned, as I will post a few more on this site when I get them.

|They were passing out glasses made from glo-sticks which were, naturally, a big hit!|
|From a different angle.|
|A very recognizable block letter, eh?|
|The view from underneath the lasers, showing the screen for the video and then|
line-drawing lasers, the scanning lasers, and the Lumia in the background.
