More on the Christopher Schardt:

Burning Man favorite and engineer turned LED artist, Christopher Schardt is an Oakland-based sculptor, musician and programmer. Constellation, a 6-pointed LED star canopy at The Midway makes its debut appearance. Constellation is a smaller/indoor version of his well-known Firmament piece that has graced the Playa for many years. In addition to Constellation, Schardt exhibits numerous works, which trace his art's history.

Christopher Schardt has been creating large-scale sculpture since 2000, focusing on LEDs since 2013. He works in aluminum, stainless steel, glass, plastics, electronics, and software.

Many of Schardt’s pieces strive to be a place to be. He learned how important this is with a piece called Yantra in 2003, and again in 2015 with Firmament. Rather than just walking up to Firmament, looking for a while at the pretty lights, and moving on, visitors would smile, sit down, and eventually recline, gazing up at the lights, sometimes for hours. Schardt is represented by Building 180, who work closely with artists to create unique and meaningful installations.
