The Obelisk

This impressive bit of propmaking was the centerpiece of the Event Horizon science fiction LARP earlier this year.  The event's Facebook page has a closer look at how it was made.
Behind the scenes at Event Horizon 1. We can finally unveil our major prop for the larp: the Ancient Machine, or the team's misnomer, the Obelisk.

Angelo Taylor built the obelisk, with design by Sadia Bies. It was a massive undertaking -- laser-cut panels, a control panel that opened the doors, lights, and a rotating chair. A HUGE thank you to the amazing Angelo for making this happen, and to Maya Ziv for doing last minute trouble shooting on site.
