LAKA'LELUP is a Wášiw (Washoe) term meaning “coming together for a common purpose.” The LAKA'LELUP program is a dynamic public art experience utilizing interactive technologies and custom audio and visual display systems that feature a curated set of data visualization designed to inform and activate
audiences onsite and online about how we can come together individually and collectively to preserve and protect the natural grandeur of the Lake Tahoe Basin.
The unique floating sculpture is designed on two, 50' x 10' barges often used for annual firework displays. The exterior is clad in two-way polycarbonate mirror, with a mesh of addressable LED lights underneath. By day the sculpture will reflect the natural beauty of it's surroundings, while encouraging people to paddle out and examine it. As evening falls, it will illuminate with a range of beautiful and informative videos.
