Take tree branches, wires and random thriftstore crap and paint it in UV reactive paint.

This project will be used to decorate:

  • The chillout lounge
  • Heaven
  • The Bar (?)

We can add a super secret extra layer of UV-active paint onto various decoration objects.

Things to look out for

  • Only properly works during night.
  • different UV-active pigments (colors) will probably be visible without UV to varying degrees

Things we could actually build

  • Extra layer on $SHApropaganda
    • Mark secret routes/places?
    • How about a gallery of secret service heads from around the world, that have "horror clown" UV makeup, fitting circus theme, night time and the recent clown encounters?
  • UV "Forest" out of smoothed painted branches


  • UV lighting (at best controllable via artnet; I think SA007 had something picked out)
    • Are UV moving heads a thing we can have?
  • Actual evaluation of UV pigments and their visibility without UV around.
