We've just finished building a brand new iteration of the Telestereoscope. This piece was commissioned by CuriOdyssey at Coyote Point, a science museum in San Mateo, California. Starting in June 2011, it will be part of their permanent outdoor exhibition. Version 5 is a cleaner, more streamlined design, similar to Version 3, but made of stainless steel, and with mirrors that are easier for us to calibrate and lock down for public handling. More photos from the fabrication and installation can be found here.

The Telestereoscope will be part of an outdoor exhibition of art from Burning Man at the Sonoma Museum of Visual Art, on the grounds of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, CA. The site is an open field with panoramic views of the picturesque Sonoma hills. This is a spectacular location for the Telestereoscope.
We are having an informal opening picnic on Saturday, June 2nd, to which all are welcome. There will also be an official closing party on the night of July 28th.
